Gary Zaldy
Gary Zaldy has been engaged in selling dry goods in the public market while his wife works abroad. He is 34 years old and has no children yet. The couple aims to earn and save more income to build their own house and establish a home-based business. In this regard, Gary Zaldy plans to improve his business by selling different kinds of dry goods to meet his customers' demand.

Due to inadequate capital, Gary Zaldy is requesting a loan of PHP 50,000 to buy additional stocks of dry goods such as pants, t-shirts, blouses, jackets, short pants and underwear to sell in the market. He believes that when he works hard for it, he will make his business grow and achieve his goals in the future. Gary Zaldy mentioned that the loan will help him to work out his plan.
