A loan of $125 helped to purchase feed for her pigs.


Fe's story

Fe, age 54, raises and sells pigs to members of the local community. She has been engaged in her business for five years and earns approximately 4,000 PHP a month. She and her husband have three grown children and live in the village of Dullan, Aloran, Misamis Occidental.

Fe joined PMPC to gain access to financial services. She wanted to help improve her living situation and increase her ability to engage in business activities.

Fe is requesting a new loan of 5,000 PHP, with which she will purchase feed for her pigs. This loan will be the second loan taken out by Fe from PMPC. She plans to use the additional revenue generated from the business to improve and expand her business.
