Arlyn's story

Arlyn is 53 years old, married and resident of Dullan, Aloran, Misamis Occidental, Mindanao in the Philippines. From her desire to help the family, she engaged in a buying and selling business with PHP 3,000 for starting capital and she 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 good standing and has taken out several loans.

Now she is applying for 49,900 PHP to restock inventories for her business. She wants to buy bags of rice, cases of soft drinks, soap, noodles and others. Through this, she hopes to increase her income and from it she can then sustain the needs of her family. In the future, she one day wants to own a space near a public market where she could display her stocks with convenience. She will be fully satisfied if she sees her children finish their studies.
