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

A loan helped to buy additional coconut shells to make charcoal for sale.

Novembrita's story

Novembrita is a supportive mother of three school-age children. Her husband is a farmer and cultivates their small parcel of corn land and coconut land as their source of income. Novembrita knows that their income is not enough to cover their daily expenses. So she started buying charcoal which helps support them.

She is applying for a loan from Paglaum amounting to 30,000 PHP to buy coconut shells in bulk and process them into charcoal for delivery to the nearest town. She hopes that her business will continue to grow, because she loves to help her jobless neighbors.
