A loan of $700 helped to purchase more oysters to sell to customers.


Elsie's story

As a married mother of 2 children, Elsie works hard to support her family. She has a business selling oysters in the Philippines, and also earns additional income from tailoring and general store businesses. Elsie is borrowing 30,000 PHP through NWTF in order to purchase more oysters to sell to customers. Elsie has been sustaining her business activities through her past 14 loans from NWTF and more recently, through Kiva. She hopes that her hard work will help her attain her dream to save money to expand her business and continue to send her children to college.
