Gilda is 45 years old and married with five children, two of whom are in school. Gilda works very hard to provide for them.
She runs a general store in the Philippines and requested a 15,000 PHP (Philippines pesos) loan through NWTF to buy more household goods to sell like canned goods, eggs, soap, etc.
Gilda has been in this business for eight years.
In the future Gilda would like to save enough money so she could afford to send her children to college.
