Nelly's story

Nelly D. is 48 years old. She lives in Maricaban, Pasay City with her husband Elvin, 30, who works as a driver. They have a child in elementary school.

Nelly opened a sari-sari (general) store three years ago, the same year she joined the Center for Community Transformation (CCT) Credit Cooperative. Loans from the cooperative have helped her grow her store and helped her meet her family's daily, basic needs. From her sari-sari store, Nelly has a monthly profit of P7,500.

Nelly is working hard to support her child's education. She wants to see her child finish college, which Nelly wasn't able to do herself.
