Irene is 29 years old and married with three children. With three children currently in school, Irene works very hard to provide for them.
She runs a general store in the Philippines and requested a PHP 10,000 loan through NWTF to buy additional items like canned goods, detergent soap, shampoo, cooking oil, noodles, biscuits, etc. to sell.
Irene has been in this business for one year and sells a variety of items such as canned goods, detergent soap, shampoo, cooking oil, noodles, biscuits, etc.
In the future, she would like to save enough money so she can afford to send her children to school.
