Mary Joycee's loan finished fundraising, but these other borrowers need your support

A loan helped to purchase feed for the maintenance of her hogs and fish.

Mary Joycee's story

Mary Joycee is aged 33, still single, and resides at San Mateo, Isabela.

She owns and manages a hog-raising business and a fisheries/aquaculture business in her village. She earns an approximate net income of PHP 25,000 every four months in her businesses.

Her net income on this business was spent on her daily expenses at home. Due to insufficient capital in her business, she would like to avail herself of a loan to Alalay Sa Kaunlaran amounting to PHP 40,000 to purchase feed for the maintenance of her hogs and fish.

She's hoping that her business will continue to grow productively and profitably.
