Gina
Gina G. is a married woman who lives in Barangay Piñon, Samboan, Cebu. She earns her living by operating 2 business ventures: a general store and a videoke business. Her husband Eric G., who is 47 years old, works as a driver to earn his living. They have 5 children who are between 9 and 25 years old. One child already has a family, 3 are working and 1 is currently going to school.

Gina joined NWTF-Project Dungganon in 2005 because she aspired for something better for her family. With the help of her past 13 loans from NWTF-Project Dungganon, Gina has been incrementally lifting her family out of poverty by the sweat of her brow. Her previous loan of PHP 19,500 helped her earn a monthly profit of PHP 6000, uplifting the family's standard of living. This time, for her 14th loan, she is borrowing PHP 15,000, with which she intends to purchase more stock to sell so that she can continue to save up for the future and put up an additional business(poultry).

Gina G. is a Dungganon woman who is following an honorable path toward the achievement of her dreams.

About NWTF: In a world full of challenges, Negros Women for Tomorrow Foundation (NWTF), is making a difference in the lives of thousands of women through Project Dungganon (a Hiligaynon word that means Honorable). Through the alleviation program, NWTF is empowering these women to progress from earning less than $1 a day to achieving realities that surpass even their dreams. They have taken a life path that will ultimately make them Dungganon - a title of esteem that is bestowed to a member of a community who has earned the respect through a lifetime of hard and honest work.

More information about this loan

On Friday November 8, 2013, Super Typhoon Haiyan made its way through Southeast Asia, causing substantial damage to homes and businesses in areas of the Philippines. Given the state of devastation following this storm, borrowers living and working in these areas may have difficulty making repayments on their loans, thus making their Kiva loans higher risk. More information >>
