Marcelina's story

Marcelina is from Dipolog City, Zamboanga del Norte, Philippines. She is married and has two children. Her husband is a farmer. Unable to sustain the needs of the family with only her husband’s income, she has found ways to attain income through her eatery business. It began with displaying a small amount of viands to their neighbors until she opened a small space for the eatery. To generate more income, Marcelina joined Paglaum Cooperative, which helped her in the capitalization of her sari-sari (small grocery) store in February of 2012. She became a MIGS member, which is why she has received loans several times already. Now, she applies for 14,900 PHP to buy merchandise for her sari-sari store and to pay for additional raw ingredients for her eatery business. She hopes that her business will continue, so that she can give her family a better life.
