A loan helped business expansion.

Jelisa's story

Jelisa B. has been in business for eight years now. She is 47 years old and lives in the upland town of Silang in the province of Cavite.

Jelisa owns and manages a tailoring shop where she makes dresses for various people. Adjacent to her tailoring shop is a plastic wares store which she opened recently. Both businesses are situated inside the Silang Public Market. She earns close to P 15,000 net income per month from the combined operation of these businesses.

She became a member of the Center for Community Transformation (CCT) Credit Cooperative in 2006, the same year she established her plastic wares store. She enjoys a lot of benefits from the cooperative. Her businesses grew dramatically. From her profits, she was able to purchase a plot of land and her future project is to build her own house on it. She was also able to purchase an additional sewing machine.

Jelisa is asking for a loan in the amount of P22,000 for the expansion of her tailoring shop. She’s now geared toward saving more to be able to build her own house soon.
