Mrs. U. is on her third loan cycle and is applying for the amount of PHP 10,000 to be used for her hog-fattening business, specifically to purchase feed for hog-growing and hog maintenance.
She started this business several years ago by buying just one pig and raising it to become a sow. Mrs. U. is planning to build a piggery building someday. She hopes that her daughter can find better work with support from her financially through the income from her business and hand in hand with Kiva.
About Paglaum Multi-Purpose CooperativePaglaum Multi-Purpose Cooperative (PMPC) was founded in 1992 by the beneficiaries, parents and staff of the Paglaum Community Development Foundation to address economic and livelihood activities for sustainability. The organization operates in the northwestern provinces of Mindanao and Visayas.
In the local vernacular, “paglaum” means “hope.” The initial foundation is dedicated to child development through a holistic approach. The goal is to build self-reliance and expand opportunity so the poorest of the poor can help themselves.
