Mary Vic's story

Mary Vic, 23, is a married resident of P-Vanda, Brgy.Maloro, Tangub City, Misamis Occidental, Philippines. Her husband is an Overseas Filipino Worker (OFW). They have 1 child. Starting with a capitalization of 15,000 PHP, she opened a sari-sari (general store) and was able to expand it with the help of Paglaum Cooperative. Aside from financial assistance, she was able to generate savings and enjoys the benefit given by the co-op. She became a member in February 2013 and this is her 2nd loan.

Now she is applying for a loan of 50,000 PHP to buy additional stocks for her sari-sari store, particularly basic commodities. In the future, she wants to own a mini-mart someday, and she will be fully satisfied if she sees her children finish their studies.
