Gemma's story

For over five years in Camanga, Tukuran, Gemma, a 46-year-old married mother of three children has made a living through the operation of a retail business, selling a variety of food and homemade products. She earns 15,000 PHP a month for these activities.

In 2011, Gemma joined GDMPC to gain access to financial services to help improve her business and living situation. She is now requesting a loan of 30,000 PHP to purchase new items to expand her product offering. She plans to use the additional revenue generated from the loan as a reserve for future emergencies.
