Lilibeth's story

Lilibeth B. is from the village of Talairon, Oroquieta City. She is 42 years old. Lilibeth is married and has three school-aged children.

To make a living, Lilibeth owns and operates a sari-sari (variety) store. While not the only means for generating revenue, the main source of income for the business comes primarily from selling a variety of different products in the local community. Lilibeth has been engaged in her business for more than eight years and earns approximately 8000 PHP a month for this activity.

In 2002, Lilibeth joined PMPC to gain access to financial services to help improve her living situation and her ability to engage in business activities. Lilibeth has successfully repaid a previous loan from PMPC. Lilibeth is requesting a new loan of 40000 PHP which will be used to purchase additional products to sell. This loan will be the 12th loan taken out by Lilibeth from PMPC. She plans to use the additional revenue generated from the business to financially support immediate members of her family.
