A loan helped to buy additional grocery items, like basic commodities, to sell.


Nerma's story

Nerma is 42 years old, single, and lives in Liloy, Philippines. Her source of income comes from their “sari-sari” (mini-grocery) store and “carenderia” (small restaurant). She manages the store, and at the same time she is the cook.

She joined Paglaum MPC just this year because of the benefits given to members. She has applied for a loan to buy additional grocery items, like basic commodities, to sell. She looks forward to someday her sari-sari becoming a grocery store with a restaurant and videoke bar.


This loan is special because:

It allows borrowers in underserved regions to access capital.
