Torberita's story

Torberita is 30 years old, married, and a resident of Siayan, Zamboanga del Norte, Philippines. Her husband is a tricycle driver. They have 5 children, of which 2 are in school. Starting with 3,000 PHP as capital, she opened a sari-sari (general store) and was able to expand it with the help of Paglaum Cooperative. Aside from financial assistance, she was able to generate savings and enjoys the benefit given by the co-op. She became a member last April 2012 and has taken out three loans already without any record of default. Now she is applying for 5,000 PHP to buy additional stocks of canned goods, noodles, etc, for her sari-sari store. In the future, Torberita wants to own a mini-mart someday, and she will be fully satisfied if she sees her children finish their studies.
