Lydia's story

Lydia R., from the city of Maquilao Tangub City, is 48 years old, married, and has one grown child. Lydia sells fish raised in her "fish pond" for a living. Engaged in her business for over 10 years, she earns approximately 20000 PHP a month.

In 2008, Lydia joined GDMPC to gain access to financial services to help improve her living situation and ability to engage in business activities. Having fully repaid a previous loan of 6000 PHP from GDMPC, she is requesting a new loan, her third, of 8000 PHP to repair a transport vehicle used in the business. Lydia plans to put the additional revenue generated from the business toward improving the general living conditions of her family.
