Divina is 38 years old, married, and lives at Brgy. Polao, Tangub City, Philippines. With a desire to earn, she decided to raise pigs on her own.
Through Paglaum MPC Divina obtained the capital to purchase her piglets and feed. Now, she is requesting a loan of 14,000 PHP 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 easily keep more sanitary conditions.
About Paglaum Multi-Purpose Cooperative
Paglaum Multi-Purpose Cooperative (PMPC) was founded in 1992 by the beneficiaries, parents and staff of the Paglaum Community Development Foundation to address economic and livelihood activities for sustainability. The organization operates in the northwestern provinces of Mindanao and Visayas.
In the local vernacular, “paglaum” means “hope.” The initial foundation is dedicated to child development through a holistic approach. The goal is to build self-reliance and expand opportunity so the poorest of the poor can help themselves.
