A loan of $1,225 helped to buy more items to sell to her customers.

Evelyn's story

Evelyn, 31, lives in Bacoor, Cavite, the Philippines with her husband and children. She earns a living by running a general store where she sells various plastic items that she buys from wholesalers. Customers are attracted to her store because prices are low and there are many items to choose from. Most of her customers are neighbors and people who live in her community. She earns a minimum of 300 Philippine Pesos (PHP) in sales every day.

To help continue her business, she is requesting a loan for PHP 50,000 to buy items such as toys, plastic ware and other related products. She expects a boost in her income as she expands her business, and hopes to continue doing this so that she can give her children a quality education. She faithfully meets up with her co-fellowship* members to share stories of her work every week and draw strength and inspiration from her religion.

* 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 people who meet each week to study religion, build social capital and repay microfinance loans.
