Gigi is 40 years old and is married with 4 children. With 3 children in school, Gigi works very hard to provide for them.

Gigi runs a rice-retailing business in the Philippines. She has been in this business for 11 years and has requested a loan of 19,000 Philippine pesos (PHP) through the Negros Women for Tomorrow Foundation, Inc. (NWTF) to purchase more sacks of rice.

In the future, Gigi would like to expand her business to secure her family's future and send her children to college.

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 >>
