Almira's story

Almira C., 33, lives with her husband Elvin, 32, a family driver, and their two grade school children in the heart of a joyful community in Maricaban, Pasay City.

Almira owns a general store located just in front of her house. She remembers starting this business five years ago with a handful of items to sell. She now earns close to P10,000 a month from her general store.

Almira joined the Center for Community Transformation (CCT) Credit Cooperative in 2004, the same year she opened her general store. She is applying for a P15,000 loan from CCT which she said she will use to expand her store by purchasing more items to sell.
