Idalyn's story

Idalyn V. is from the village of Libertad Alto, Sinacaban, Misamis Occidental. She is 32 years old, is married, and has one school-aged child.

Idalyn owns and operates a business raising crops, primarily planting and harvesting a variety of vegetables, bananas and coconuts for sale. She is just starting this business.

In 2008, Idalyn joined PMPC to gain access to financial services to help improve her living situation and her ability to engage in business activities. She has successfully repaid a previous loan of 50,000 PHP from PMPC. This previous loan was used to to purchase land to raise additional crops.

Idalyn is requesting a new loan of 50,000 PHP which will be used to pay for services to increase crop yield. This loan will be her 2nd from PMPC. She plans to use the additional revenue generated from the business to improve the general living conditions of her family.
