Mrs. Salve Z. is a former OFW (Overseas Filipina Worker). At the age of 31, she got married to Dominic Z., an overseas seaman, now residing in P7 Gango, Ozamiz City. Theye are blessed with 2 children, both studying in Gango Elementary School.

Even though her husband is an overseas seaman, Salve still wanted to help earn their living. She decided to put up a little Sari-sari (variety) Store with a small amount of capital. Unfortunately, she experienced a net loss. She tried to revive her business and invested again in the store. Now her business is still existing and has showed progress in sales and inventory. As an active regular member, she is now applying for the amount of PHP 20,000 as her 4th loan. As a mother, her only desire is to give her children a better education for their good future. She is very thankful to God, to PAGLAUM and to KIVA for helping fulfill her hopes and dreams in life.
