Charmen's story

For over two years in Calamba, Misamis Occidental, Charmen, a 28-year-old married mother of three children, has made a living through the operation of a general store selling a variety of food and home-use products such as candies, milo, shampoo, soaps etc. She earns 3,000 PHP a month for these activities.

In 2011, Charmen joined GDMPC to gain access to financial services to help improve her business and living situation. She is now requesting a loan of 7,000 PHP to purchase new items to expand her product offering. She plans to use the additional revenue generated from the loan as a reserve for future emergencies.
