Bernardino is thankful that he joined Paglaum MPC. With very little capital, he was able to start his sari-sari (general store) business. His daily sales go the extra mile for the family's needs. They were also able to save their extra income. He has applied to Paglaum MPC for additional capital of PHP 10,000 to buy oil, vinegar, soy sauce and sugar to sell. Bernardino said he was attracted to Paglaum MPC for the savings and insurance services of the cooperative. He wants to gradually expand his little store and taste the good life someday.
