A loan of $575 helped a member to purchase livestock feed and other supplies.

Jenelyn Dabalos Group's story

Jenelyn D. is from the village of Pan-ay, Clarin, Misamis Occidental. She is 34 years old. Jenelyn is the group leader of a three-member group loan offered by PMPC, a Kiva partner. While each member of the group receives an individual loan, they are all collectively responsible for paying back the loans of their fellow group members if someone is delinquent or defaults. The official name of this borrowing group is Jenelyn D. Group.

Jenelyn is married and has a school-aged child. To make a living, Jenelyn raises livestock. The main source of income for the business comes from raising pigs for sale. Jenelyn has been engaged in her business for more than 15 years and earns approximately 1,200 Philippine pesos (PHP) a month from it.

In 2009, Jenelyn joined PMPC to gain access to financial services to help improve her living situation and ability to engage in business activities. Jenelyn has successfully repaid a previous loan of 6,000 PHP from PMPC. This previous loan was used to purchase livestock feed and other supplies.

Jenelyn is requesting a new loan of 12,000 PHP, which will also be used to purchase livestock feed and other supplies. This will be the third loan taken out by Jenelyn from PMPC. She plans to use the additional revenue generated from the business to improve the general living conditions of her family.
