This is Elizabeth, 46, a resident of Malibay, Pasay City, Philippines. She and her husband, Ramon, have four children. She, together with her husband and children, manage their household while operating their business. At this time, she is working hard to continually provide income for her everyday expenses.

Elizabeth operates a salon business. She offers hair styling, hair grooming, manicures, pedicures, etc. Her regular customers are her neighbors and the local community. She earns a minimum of 600 Philippine Pesos (PHP) in sales every day.

To help her continue the operation of her business, she is requesting a PHP 50,000 loan. She will use the loan to buy supplies for her salon like shampoo, hair treatment creams and oils, and other things needed for her business. She expects a boost in her income as she expands her business.

Elizabeth dreams of being able to give her children a good and high quality education through all her hard work on her business. She faithfully meets with her co-fellowship* members to share stories of her work every week, and where she can also draw strength and inspiration from the Word of God she studies.

* All CCT community partners / clients are organized into fellowship groups that meet on a weekly basis. A fellowship group is composed of 15 to 30 community partners. The fellowship groups gather each week to study the Word of God, build social capital, and pay microfinance loans.

More information about this loan

On Friday November 8, 2013, Super Typhoon Haiyan made its way through Southeast Asia, causing substantial damage to homes and businesses in areas of the Philippines. Given the state of devastation following this storm, borrowers living and working in these areas may have difficulty making repayments on their loans, thus making their Kiva loans higher risk. More information >>
