Myrna's story

Myrna R. is from the town of Panaon. She is 56 years old. Myrna is married and has five adult children. To make a living, Myrna owns & operates a hog raising business.

In 2000, Myrna joined PMPC to gain access to financial services to help improve her living situation and ability to engage in business activities. Myrna has successfully repaid a previous loan from PMPC. Myrna is requesting a new loan of 14,900 PHP, which will be used to purchase livestock feed & other supplies. This loan will be the 16th loan taken out by Myrna from PMPC. She plans to use the additional revenue generated from the business to improve the general living conditions of her family.
