As a married mother of two children, Gemma works hard to support her family. She has a welding and vehicle repair shop in the Philippines and she also earns additional income from raising pigs and from a ready-to-wear clothing business. Gemma has sustained her business activities with her past three loans through NWTF.
Gemma is requesting a 13,000 PHP loan through NWTF to buy tools and equipment for her welding shop. She hopes that her hard work will help her attain her dream of expanding her business to secure the future of her family.
