A loan of $300 helped to buy additional sacks of charcoal to sell.


Christine's story

Christine is 25 years old and married with three children, one of whom in school.

Christine works hard to provide for her family. She runs a buy and sell charcoal business in the Philippines and requested a PHP 12000 loan through NWTF to buy additional sacks of charcoal to sell.

Christine has borrowed and paid 15 loans from NWTF before this loan. She has been running the buy and sell charcoal business for 5 years and also earns an income from rice retailing.

Christine aspires to save enough money so she could send her children to school.
