A loan of $525 helped to purchase assorted groceries for sale.


Agnes's story

Like other business persons, Agnes C. also dreams of success in her grocery business. She started it off small, using her savings of Php 3,000 in 1986. She managed it well and has turned it into a mini-grocery. This year, she is earning a lot from her store and what she wants to do is to send her two children to college.



However, she still needs capital to buy additional merchandise for her store. She is asking for a loan of Php 25,000 from Community Economic Ventures Inc. The loan will really help her achieve better income for her family.



She is happy with the services of CEVI. She still would like to access loans, training and insurance coverage as well from them.
