Ana D. is from the village of Libertad Bajo, Sinacaban, Misamis Occidental. She is 28 years old. Ana is married and has 2 young children. To make a living, Ana owns & operates a business venture in the agriculture sector, raising livestock.

Ana has been engaged in her business for over 4 years and earns approximately 2,600 PHP a month for these activities.

In 2009, Ana joined PMPC to gain access to financial services to help improve her living situation and ability to engage in business activities. Ana has successfully repaid a previous loan of 5,000 PHP from PMPC. This previous loan was used to to purchase baby livestock to raise & sell in future. Ana is requesting a new loan of 9,500 PHP which will be used to purchase livestock feed & other supplies. This will be the 2nd loan taken out by Ana from PMPC.
