Arlene's story

Arlene T., 48 years of age, is married to Rico Tempura who is a laborer. They are blessed with five children and four of them are still studying. Arlene decided to be part of a Paglaum coop so that she could get a loan of additional capital for her sari-sari or grocery store and for the capitalization of her new business of "chicharon" making. Chicharon is a popular food appetizer made with pork skins.

Because the income of her husband is not enough to support them, Arlene is very thankful to PMPC for the assistance. It helps to provide for the daily financial needs of her family.
