Rizalina's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to purchase farm fertilizer such as manure and cover the labor costs for replanting.

Rizalina's story

Rizalina is a 65-year-old resident of Cabungaan, Clarin, Misamis Occidental. Rizalina has been helping her family with their needs from the little amount of 15,000 PHP that she has been earning monthly from her coconut production business for years. However, in 2007, she became a member of GDMPC and applied for a loan at GDMPC to purchase farm fertilizer. Recently, she borrowed again for a loan for fertilizer such as manure and to cover the labor costs for replanting. Rizalina planned to cultivate the farm to have a greater harvest in the future.
