Emy's story

Emy is a 54-year-old micro-entrepreneur from Cainta, Rizal, Philippines. She is married to Raymundo, 53, and works as a driver. They have grown children who are working and helping them earn income for the family. Emy has a variety store that she opened in 1999, and she sells different grocery items by piece and by sachet. Through this business, she was able to send her children to school and sustain their everyday needs.

To have additional capital, she would like to request a loan that will be used to buy more quantities of toiletries, rice, soda, chips, canned goods, charcoal and other grocery items. She hopes that her business will continue to grow and flourish. She also dreams to have her own house.

Emy is a member of the Center for Community Transformation and meets weekly with her fellowship partners to share her life’s testimony and business experience with her fellowship members. She also draws strength and inspiration from the fellowship and listening to the Word of God. A fellowship group is composed of 15 to 20 members. The fellowship groups gather each week to study the Word of God, build social relationship among partners, and pay Micro Finance loans.
