Germelina's story

Germelina P., from the village of Tabo-o, Jimenez, Misamis Occidental, is 42 years old, married and has grown children. To make a living, Germelina has been planting and harvesting rice for sale for over three years, earning approximately 5,000 PHP a month.



In 2009, Germelina joined GDMPC 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 15,000 PHP from GDMPC that was used as additional capital for her business, she is now requesting her third loan in the amount of 25000 PHP to purchase fertilizers such as manure. Germelina plans to use the additional revenue generated from the business to improve/expand her enterprise.
