Jurnalyn's story

Jurnalyn T. is from the village of Puntod, Lopez Jaena, Misamis Occidental. She is 25 years old, married and has one school-aged child. To make a living, Jurnalyn owns and operates a fishing business. The main source of income for the business comes from selling fish in the local community. Jurnalyn has been engaged in her business for over five years and earns approximately 2,000 PHP a month from these activities.

In 2009, Jurnalyn joined Kiva partner GDMPC to gain access to financial services to help improve her living situation and ability to engage in business activities. She has successfully repaid a previous loan of 3,000 PHP from GDMPC. Jurnalyn is requesting a new loan of 3,000 PHP, which will be used to purchase additional fish to sell. This loan will be her second from GDMPC. She plans to use the additional revenue generated from the business to supplement her family's income.
