Winifreda's story

Winifreda is from Poblacio Alto, Sergio Osmena, Zamboanga del Norte. She is 65 years of age and married. In 2012 Winifreda joined Paglaum MPC and appreciates the programs and services of said co-op. She became an active member of Paglaum MPC with good credit standing. She and her husband manage a small machine shop in her hometown. With their business they face many challenges. Their business is not sufficient for their daily needs. From her desire to help the family, Winifreda has become engaged in selling fish in different barangays in the municipality of Sergio Osmena, Zamboanga del Norte, with the help of her children. This other source of income has existed for almost 2 years now. Winifreda has requested financial assistance from Paglaum MPC in the amount of PHP 50,000.00 to purchase stock of pancit (noodles) as another source of income. She and her family welcome the new idea that while peddling fish they might also sell pancit to different sari-sari stores too. Through this new project, she hopes to increase her income and provide for the daily needs of her family. She is happy she can support the education of her grandchildren, which is her main priority, even with the hardship she faces.
