A loan of $150 helped to buy piglets and feeds.

Alita's story

Alita is from the village of Dicayas. She is 56 years old and is single. Alita operates a family member's business in the agriculture sector raising pigs in the local community. She has been engaged in this business for over 3 years and earns approximately 2,500 PHP a month.

In 2008, Alita joined PMPC to gain access to financial services to help improve her living situation and her ability to engage in business activities. She has successfully repaid a previous loan of 7,000 PHP from PMPC. This previous loan was used to purchase materials and labor needed to build her pig fence. Alita is requesting a new loan of 6,000 PHP, which will be used to purchase additional piglets and feeds for her business. This will be the 4th loan taken out by Alita from PMPC. She plans to use the additional revenue generated to improve the general living conditions of her family.
