Nelita
Nelita is 50 years old and a resident of Cavite City, Philippines. Her husband is Elioterio, a teacher. She and Elioterio have four children. Together with her husband and children, Nelita manages their household while operating her business.

Nelita operates a variety store. In the Philippines, a variety store is basically a small convenience store, which retails groceries, toiletries, and beverages piecemeal to the local neighborhood. It is the place to go to buy one packet of shampoo, PHP 5 worth of cooking oil, or an egg. She makes money by getting supplies at wholesale prices and selling them by the piece. Her store is located adjacent to her house. Her regular customers are her neighbors and the local community. She earns a minimum of PHP 600 in sales every day.

To help her continue operations of her business, she is requesting a PHP 13,000 loan. She will use the loan to buy groceries, toiletries, and beverages to expand her product inventory and for the maintenance of her sewing machine. She expects a boost in her business income as she expands her business.

Nelita hopes her business would grow into a minigrocery and dreams to be able to give her children a good and high quality education through all her hard work on her business. She faithfully meets up with her co-fellowship* members to share stories of their work every week. It is also where she can 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 repay Micro Finance loans.
