As a married parent of three children, Gemma works hard to support her family. She runs a fishing business in the Philippines and also earns additional income from raising pigs. Gemma has been sustaining her business activities through her past 22 loans from NWTF.
Gemma is requesting a 29,000 PHP loan through NWTF to buy additional materials such as fishing nets and other items for her business. She hopes that her hard work will help her attain her dream of saving enough money to afford to send her children to college.
