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

A loan helped to purchase more goods for her sari-sari store.

Perlinda's story

Perlinda is 52 years old and lives in Southern Looc, Plaridel, Misamis Occidental. In order to help the family, she sells fruit salad. Aside from selling fruit salad, she operates a sari-sari store. In 2009, she became an active member of Paglaum MPC with good credit standing. Now, she wants to obtain financial assistance in the amount of PHP 15,000 to purchase more goods for her sari-sari store because selling fruit salad is not sufficient for her daily needs. She plans to send all her children to college so that they can help her in the future, and to repair their house.
