A loan of $225 helped to purchase additional fish to sell.


Jeneve's story

Jeneve S., a 31-year-old married mother of four infant-aged children, is from the village of Danao where she owns and operates a fishing business. While not the only means for generating revenue, the main source of income for the business comes from harvesting and selling ocean-caught fish in the local community. Jeneve has been engaged in her business for over six years and earns approximately 5,000 PHP a month.



In 2009, Jeneve joined PMPC to gain access to financial services to help improve her living situation and ability to engage in business activities. Having repaid a previous loan of 5,000 PHP from PMPC, she is now requesting a new loan of 10000 PHP which will be used to purchase additional fish to sell. Jeneve plans to use the additional revenue generated from the business to improve the general living conditions of her family.
