In 1999, Rogelio joined Paglaum Multi-Purpose Cooperative (PMPC) to gain access to financial services. As a result, he was able to improve his standard of living and his ability to engage in business activities. Rogelio has already successfully repaid a previous loan from PMPC. Rogelio is now requesting another loan, this time in the amount of 50,000 PHP ($1,100), which will be used to purchase additional products to sell. Notably, this loan would be the eighteenth loan taken out by Rogelio from PMPC. He plans to use the additional revenue generated from the business as a result of the loan to improve the general living conditions of his family.
