Gemma's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped to buy items to sell, such as eggs, canned goods, snack foods, home care products, and other groceries.
Gemma is 36 years old and married with one child in school. She works very hard to provide for her family. Gemma runs a general store in the Philippines. She has been in this business for two years and sells a variety of items. She requested a loan of 25,000 Philippine pesos (PHP) through NWTF to buy items to sell, such as eggs, canned goods, snack foods, home care products, and other groceries. In the future, Gemma would like to build and expand her business to secure the future of her family.
