In 2006, Vivian joined PMPC to gain access to financial services to help improve her living situation and her ability to engage in business activities. Vivian has successfully repaid a previous loan from PMPC. Vivian is requesting a new loan of 25000 PHP, which will be used to purchase materials needed to provide transportation services. This loan will be the sixth loan taken out by Vivian from PMPC. She plans to use the additional revenue generated from the business to improve the general living conditions of her family.
