Edna is a 51-year-old resident of Pandahan, SND, Lanao del Norte. Edna provides for her 3 children's needs from the little amount of PHP 13,800 she gains monthly from her vulcanizing shop business. She has run this business for 7 years as an aid to the income gained from her husband.
Edna has been a member of GDMPC since this year. She has applied for a loan at GDMPC micro finance for PHP 15,000 to purchase materials needed to provide service. Edna wants to make expansion to her business one day.
