Marites's story

Marites is 39 years old and lives in Sto. Niño, Tukuran Zamboanga Del Sur with her two children.

She has been in this business for six years and earns 10,000 PHP from her work. In 2009, Marites joined GDMPC as a way to improve her business, and is requesting a loan for 15,000 PHP to buy new items to sell to her customers. She plans to use the additional revenue generated by her business to improve her family's living conditions.
