Gilda has been involved in the livestock business for ten years. Raising hogs is what she does to help her husband bring in income for their family. She aspires to be more productive in her business to help sustain the educational needs of her children.
For the second time, Gilda would like to ask for a PHP 20,000 loan from Kiva lenders to have additional capital for purchasing piglets and a sufficient supply of feed. She hopes that she will again be granted her request because it will be a big help in the maintenance and development of her livestock business.
“Love is the greatest gift of God”. This is what Gilda believes in life, and the reason why she is fond of helping others, because she shares the love God has given us. She is married to Pedro V. and is blessed with three children. They are currently studying and are in different school levels. She hopes that they will all finish their studies, including college. She believes that her diligence in working and her husband’s patience in farming will help them achieve their dreams.
