Juvy Ann's story

Juvy Ann B., 27, is married mother of two boys. Her husband, Godofredo, is a government employee.

Juvy has run a variety store in a destitute area of Buntong Palay, San Mateo, Rizal for more than two years. Her store caters to the basic needs of their community, including rice, purified drinking water, and electronic load distribution (mobile phone credit). Before a recent break-in, her store earned a weekly profit of P5000. The thief who broke into her store ran off with grocery items and all the money in her cash box. With little inventory, and no money to replace the stolen items, she is only earning around P2,000 a week now. Her new loan will be used to replenish her store and to buy sacks of rice and purified drinking water in five liter containers. She also wants to start up a "lutong ulam" (cooked food) business for added income. Juvy considers this bad experience as a wake up call from God because her store kept her very busy, even on Sundays. It was almost two years ago when she last attended a Sunday Service. With renewed mind and spirit, Juvy knows that God will bless her business again.
