Anita's story

Anita E. is from the village of Galas. She is 50 years old, is married, and has one adult child.

Anita owns and operates a business making and selling food, selling steamed rice cake products in the local community. She has been engaged in her business for over four years and earns approximately 6,000 PHP a month.

In 2009, Anita joined PMPC to gain access to financial services to help improve her living situation and her ability to engage in business activities. She has successfully repaid a previous loan of 7,000 PHP from PMPC. This previous loan was used to to purchase additional raw ingredients needed to make products for sale.

Anita is requesting a new loan of 10,000 PHP which will be used for the same purpose. This loan will be her 2nd from PMPC and her second from Kiva. She plans to use the additional revenue generated from the business to improve the living conditions of her family and to improve and expand her business.
