Reynalda is from Plaridel and never gets tired with her farming activities. She tills her rice land and sells her produce.
At the age of 63, Reynalda supported her 2 children out of her rice production. Now she is asking for a loan to pay for farm inputs (fertilizers, etc.). She hopes that she could retire with enough savings.
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.
