Rosalinda's story

Rosalinda is from the village of Dolores, Clarin, Misamis Occidental. She is a 59-year-old married woman with five adult children. Rosalinda runs an agricultural business venture raising crops in the community. Rosalinda has been engaged in her business for twenty years and earns approximately 10000 PHP a month.

Rosalinda joined Kiva partner Paglaum Multi-Purpose Cooperative (PMPC) to access financial services to help improve her living situation and ability to engage in business activities. She has successfully repaid a previous loan of 12000 PHP from PMPC. This previous loan was used to purchase additional products to sell.

Rosalinda is requesting a new loan of 14000 PHP with which she will purchase additional inventory as working capital. She plans to use the additional revenue generated to improve and expand her business.
