Meriam's story

Meriam is from Usokan, Plaridel. She is 52 years of age. She and her partner have 3 school-age kids. This year, 2014, she joined Paglaum MPC and she appreciates the programs and services of the said co-op.

From her desire to help the family, she engaged in selling fish in different barangays (small villages) in the municipality of Plaridel. Only her motorcycle was used as her source of transportation to reach the different barangays and sell fish. This has been her source of income for 2 years now.

In need of additional working capital, she requested financial assistance from Paglaum MPC in the amount of Php 20,000 to purchase more stock of fish. Through this, she hopes to increase and/or have more income so she is able to provide for the daily needs of her family. Also she is happy she can support the education of her children which is her main priority in her hardship.
