Lourdes's story

In the little barangay of Mabini, Baliangao, Misamis Occidental, Lourdes P., 61 years old, used to operate a copra-buying business. Her husband was her greatest business partner for 20 years. They educated their 2 children from their copra-buying business. Life is not so tough for the family to survive. The business they operated was good and their neighbors are their loyal customers, but the family would like to venture into a mini grocery store. They want to help their neighborhood by providing a store that has it all. They know that this business would not be possible without help. Paglaum MPC came as a resource for their capital needs. They applied for a PHP 50,000 loan to purchase additional stocks for their store and for store improvement as well.



Lourdes and her husband have a big wish for their “apo” (grandchild) to finish his studies. But above all, they want to serve the community and for their business to flourish.
