Sevilla's story

Sevilla B. is 53 years old, married, and has six adult-aged children. She is from the village of Macabibo, Sapang Dalaga. Sevilla is engaged in growing rice to sell as her main source of income. From this activity, she's able to earn a monthly net income of about $75. She has been in this business for twenty years.

In 2006, Sevilla joined PMPC to gain access to financial services to help improve her living situation and ability to engage in business activities. She has successfully repaid a previous loan of 14,900 PHP from PMPC. This previous loan was used as additional capital for her business.
