Ilyn's story

As a married parent of three children, Ilyn works hard to support her family.

She has a general store business in the Philippines, and also earns additional income from food vending. Ilyn is borrowing PHP 13,000 through NWTF to buy additional items to sell like soap, shampoo, milk, canned goods, and eggs for her general store business.

Ilyn has been sustaining her business activities through her past 3 loans from NWTF. She hopes that her hard work will help her attain her dream to save enough money so she can afford to send her children to college.
