Susan's story

Susan is a hardworking entrepreneur, who has a food vending business in the Philippines. She has been in this business for 20 years, and she earns additional income by raising pigs, farming coconut, and buying and selling dried coconut.

She is borrowing PHP 13,000 through NWTF. She will use the loan to buy ingredients for the foods she will prepare and sell. Susan has been sustaining her business activities through her own efforts, with the help of loans from NWTF. She dreams of saving enough money so she could afford to send her children to college.
