Yolanda's story

Yolanda is 42 years old and married, with four children.

Yolanda works hard to provide for her family. She runs a general store in the Philippines and has requested a PHP 29,500 loan through Negros Women for Tomorrow Foundation, Inc. (NWTF) to purchase stocks to sell, like canned goods, soap, cream, sugar, and spices.

Yolanda has borrowed and paid 15 loans from NWTF before this loan. She has been running the general store for six years and also earns an income from raising chickens.

Yolanda aspires to save enough money, so she could afford to send her children to college.
