Gemma's story

Gemma, 40 years old, lives in Molave. Unable to sustain the needs of the family with only her husband’s income, she has found ways to attain income through her sari-sari store. She joined Paglaum Cooperative, which helped her in the capitalization of her sari-sari (small grocery) store. She became a MIGS member, which is why she has received loans several times already. Now she is applying for 50,000 PHP to buy merchandise for her sari-sari store. She hopes that her business will continue and some day become a mini-grocery.
