Anacita's story

Anacita is from the village of Bunawan in the municipality of Calamba in Misamis Occidental Province. She is 58 years old. Anacita is widowed and has five grown children. To make a living, Anacita operates a specialized retail store. The main source of income for the business comes from selling firewood in the local community. Anacita has been engaged in her business for over 5 years, and she earns approximately 3000 PHP a month for these activities.

In 2010, Anacita joined GDMPC to gain access to financial services to help improve her living situation and ability to engage in business activities. Anacita has successfully repaid a previous loan of 5000 PHP from GDMPC. Anacita is requesting a new loan of 5000 PHP, which will be used to purchase additional firewood to sell. This loan will be the third loan taken out by Anacita from GDMPC. She plans to use the additional revenue generated from the business to improve/expand her business.
