A loan of $350 helped to use as additional capital for her general store.

Leonora's story

This is Leonora S., a 35 year old store owner. She lives with her husband and five children in Camarin, Caloocan City.

Leonora owns and manages a variety (general) store. Beside it is her husband’s barber shop which she also manages. They’ve been in business for five years. The barber shop earns P10,000 a month while her store makes P14,000 monthly, enough to sustain their family’s basic daily needs.

Leonora is applying for a new loan of P16,000 with the Center for Community Transformation (CCT) Credit Cooperative as additional capital to purchase goods to sell at her store. It has been Leonora’s long sought-after dream to have a grocery store of her own.
