Maria Fe's story

Maria Fe J. is from the village of Silanga, Tangub City, Misamis Occidental. She is 35 years old. Maria Fe is married and has 4 school-aged children. To make a living, Maria Fe owns and operates a business venture in the construction sector, providing carpentry services. While not the only means for generating revenue, the main source of income for the business comes from providing repair services to local community members. Maria Fe has been engaged in her business for over 2 years and earns approximately 2000 PHP a month for these activities.



In 2009, Maria Fe joined GDMPC to gain access to financial services to help improve her living situation and ability to engage in business activities. Maria Fe is requesting a new loan of 5,000 PHP which will be used to purchase materials needed to provide the service. This will be the first loan taken out by Maria Fe from GDMPC. She plans to use the additional revenue generated from the business to improve her family's living conditions.
