Evangeline's story

Evangeline I. is from the village of Calaran, Calamba, Misamis Occidental. She is 40 years old. Evangeline is single. To make a living, Evangeline owns and operates a service-based transportation business. While not the only means for generating revenue, the main source of income for the business comes from providing motor cab services to local community members. Evangeline has been engaged in her business for over 3 years and earns approximately 2,000 PHP a month for these activities.

In 2009, Evangeline joined GDMPC to gain access to financial services to help improve her living situation and ability to engage in business activities. Evangeline is requesting a new loan of 4,000 PHP, which will be used to purchase materials needed to provide transportation services. This loan will be the first loan taken out by Evangeline from GDMPC. She plans to use the additional revenue generated from the business to supplement her family's income.
