Marilou's story

Marilou is 39 years old and married with three children.

She works hard to provide for her family. She runs a general store in the Philippines and requested a PHP 5,000 loan through NWTF to buy more items like biscuits, sugar, soft-drinks and other groceries.

Marilou has borrowed and paid loans from NWTF before this loan. She has been running the general store for two years and also earns an income from food production.

Marilou aspires to save enough money so she can continue to send her children to school.
