63-year-old Lucita D. understands the responsibilities of having a family. Although she and her husband were not blessed with a child, she still feels the need to have a stable job and business. Thus, she started a small grocery store with the help of her sister. Presently, the store has a good status, but Lucita won’t settle for the average. She wants to have additional capital to expand her business.

This is the reason why she joined the Community Economic Ventures Inc. (CEVI), a growing micro-finance institution in the Philippines known for its client-friendly services. Lucita is currently asking for a loan from CEVI. And as a member, she actively attends their meetings wherein she gets to mingle with her fellow members in sharing some Biblical reflections.
