A loan helped to buy additional stock of groceries.

Emilita's story

Emilita is 46 years old, married and a resident of Sapang Ama, Sapang Dalaga, Philippines. Her husband is a tricycle driver. Starting with capitalization of 3,000 PHP, she opened a sari-sari (general store) and was able to expand it with the help of Paglaum Cooperative. Aside from financial assistance, she was able to generate savings and enjoy the benefits given by the co-op. She became a member in April, 2005 and has taken out three loans.

Now she is applying for 25,000 PHP to buy additional stock for her sari-sari store, particularly basic commodities. In the future, she wants to own a mini-mart someday, and will be fully satisfied if they were bless of children.
