Glenda lives in the Philippines. She is 56 years old and married with five children. She works very hard to provide for them by running a store selling charcoal and general supplies. Glenda requested a loan of 17,000 PHP through NWTF, Kiva's field partner, to purchase additional sacks of charcoal plus sugar, coffee, canned goods, and other stock.

She has been in this business for 6 years, and in the future she hopes to save enough money to expand the store.
