Jasmin is 33 years old, married and a resident of Oroquieta City, Mindanao, Philippines.
In order to gain an extra income for a living, she is engaged in a business buying and selling eggs. Jasmin has been a member of PMPC for a year and enjoys the privileges of being a member of the Cooperative.
Now she is applying for a loan of 5,000 PHP to purchase or restock more trays of eggs for her business. Additional inventory would increase her income and from it she will be able to sustain the other needs of her family. All she wanted for her family is to have a decent and comfortable life with adequate income. Jasmin deeply wishes to maintain being a member in good standing with Paglaum Multi Purpose Cooperative.
About Paglaum Multi-Purpose Cooperative
Paglaum 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.
