A loan of $325 helped to buy merchandise for sale on her sari-sari store.


Rebecca's story

Mrs. Rebecca T., 40 years old, lives in Lumbayao, Aloran, Misamis Occidental with her husband and two children. Her husband is a construction worker. Unable to sustain the needs of the family with only her husband’s income, she has found ways to attain income through snack & food vending. It began with selling a small amount of viand & snack to their neighbors. She joined Paglaum Cooperative, which helped her in the capitalization of her sari-sari (small grocery) store in January of 2004. Mrs. Raguda became a MIGS member, which is why she has received loans several times already. Now, she applies for 14,900PHP to buy merchandise for her sari-sari store. She hopes that her business will continue and someday become a mini-grocery.
