Alpher is a tricycle operator. He is 29 years old with 2 children from Ozamiz City, Misamis Occidental. His motorcycle is very important to him because he generates income from it that supports the educational and financial matters of his family. It has been 4 years in servicing people and he never thinks to give up because he believes that in every step he makes, every step he gets, corresponding success will come to it. To answer the needs, he asks assistance from Paglaum MPC to buy another unit of motorcycle to have an extra income for his family. PMPC granted his wish and he is very thankful to it.

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.
