Evangeline's story

Evangeline F. is from the city of Oroquieta. She is 40 years old. Evangeline is married and has a school-aged child. To make a living, Evangeline owns and operates a "pansit" (fresh canton) business, making and selling food. The main source of income for the business comes primarily from selling specialty food products in the local community. Evangeline has been engaged in her business for over a year and earns approximately 10,000 PHP a month.

In 2008, Evangeline joined PMPC to gain access to financial services. She hoped to help improve her living situation and to increase her ability to engage in business activities. Evangeline has successfully repaid a previous loan of 10,000 PHP from PMPC.

Evangeline is now requesting a new loan of 14,900 PHP, which will be used to purchase raw ingredients needed to make her food products for sale. This loan will be the third loan taken out by Evangeline from PMPC. She plans to use the additional revenue generated from the business to improve the general living conditions of her family.
