A loan of $175 helped to purchase additional capital for her fish vending.

Arlyn's story

Arlyn is from the village of Taboc Norte, Oroquieta City. She is 39 years old, married and has three school-aged children. To make a living, Arlyn runs a business selling fish. Arlyn has been engaged in her business for 2 years and earns approximately 5000 PHP a month for these activities. Arlyn 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 5000 PHP from PMPC. This previous loan was used to purchase additional products to sell.

Arlyn is requesting a new loan of 7000 PHP with which she will purchase additional inventory and use some for working capital. This loan will be the fifth loan taken out by Arlyn from PMPC. She plans to use the additional revenue generated from the business to improve/expand her business.
