Lucita's story

Lucita C. is from the village of Baybay Triunfo, Ozamiz City, Misamis Occidental. She is 47 years old, married, and has one adult child. To make a living, Lucita owns and operates a general store. While not the only means for generating revenue, the main source of income for the business comes from selling a variety of different products in the local community. She has been in business for over 4 years and earns approximately 5,000 PHP a month.

In 2007, Lucita joined PMPC to access financial services to improve her living situation and to engage in business activities. Lucita has successfully repaid a previous loan of 20,000 PHP from PMPC, which was used to purchase additional products to sell.

Lucita is now requesting a loan of 30,000 PHP to purchase more groceries to sell. This will be Lucita's 8th loan from PMPC. She plans to use the additional revenue to improve her family's living conditions.
