Jesusa's story

Jesusa D. is from the village of Gusa Calatunan, Sindangan, Zamboanga del Norte. This 39-year-old married mother of two school-aged children owns and operates a general store selling daily food in the local community. Engaged in her business for eight years, she earns approximately 6000 PHP a month.

In 2007, Jesusa joined PMPC to gain access to financial services to help improve her living situation and ability to engage in business activities. Having repaid her previous loan of 8000 PHP from PMPC that was used to purchase additional products to sell, she is now requesting a new loan of 50000 PHP to purchase additional inventory and to use as working capital and for the tuition of her two children. This loan will be Jesusa's seventh from PMPC, and she plans to use the additional revenue generated from the business to improve/expand her store.
