A loan of $225 helped additional capital to purchase textiles for her tailoring business.


Anita's story

A widowed dressmaker with 2 children, Anita P. lives simply at Sibugon, Lopez Jaena, Misamis Occidental. She admits that life is totally different being father and mother at the same time. Supporting her family at the age of 62, she maintains the high quality of her dressmaking business from PHP 3,000 start-up capital. She often does school and office uniforms where job orders are in volume.



Anita is on her 7th year of membership in Paglaum MPC. All these years, Paglaum has been a consistent financing partner. The capitalization of 2 sewing machines was made easy. Today, Anita wants to try curtains and appliance and throw pillow covers. But this new venture will require capital for the materials, so she has applied for a PHP 10,000 loan.



Anita would like to employ one dressmaker for her business and she hopes to save money for her old age. But more than anything else, she fervently pray for a united, happy and healthy family.
