A loan of $225 helped to buy feed and another piglet.


Perla's story

Perla, age 70, is from Lagag, Sindangan, Zamboanga del Norte, in the Philippines. She is married, raising four children.

PMPC supported her by providing the capital to start her pig-raising business. She sold one pig at a time, helping the family survive. She gives her best efforts to producing good pigs, in order to sell them continuously.

Through Pauglam MPC she obtained the capital to purchase her original piglets and feed. Now, she requests a loan of PHP 9,000 to buy additional feed.

She really hopes and prays that her business will grow and benefit her family, in addition to the income of her husband. Someday, she wants to build a concrete pig cage to keep sanitary conditions more easily.
