Nelson's story

Mr. Nelson Q. is from the village of Bañadero, Ozamiz City, Misamis Occidental. He is 50 years old, married, blessed with one child who is now school-aged. To make a living, he is presently engaged in ministerial work as a church pastor. He’s been engaged in this kind of ministerial work for 15 years already.

As an active member of Paglaum MPC under the Regular Loan Program, Nelson has successfully repaid a loan amount of Php 10,000. He is now requesting a loan of Php 15,000 as his 3rd loan which will be used for traveling expenses for his church conference in Manila.
