She is hoping to obtain a loan of PHP 10,000 that she can use as additional capital to purchase slippers in bulk and to continue her “ukay-ukay” business.

Gina plans to send her eldest child to college and to take a management course, thus she really needs to work hard to increase her income and to help her husband to meet their daily needs. Her retail business has expanded and she hopes that it will remain strong until her children finish their studies.
