A loan of $675 helped additional capital for her electronics sales business.


Jocelyn's story

Jocelyn R. has been into buying and selling household appliances like television sets, DVD players, electric fans, rice cookers and other electronics in her community for almost three decades now. She is a 52-year-old widow living in Marcela, Pasay City with her two children. Customers order from her and she sells these items to them on an installment plan. She started small a few years back, but she’s now getting a lot of orders. She also attends to her small sari-sari (general) store right inside her house. She earns more than 22,000 Philippine pesos (PHP) a month from her businesses. While she enjoys her work, she sometimes gets fed up with customers who don’t pay on time. She also gets tired of hopping from one house to another.

Jocelyn joined the Center for Community Transformation (CCT) Credit Cooperative in 2006. Loans provided by the cooperative have been very helpful in the growth of her business. She is now applying for a new loan of 31,000 PHP as additional capital for her business. Jocelyn wishes to soon establish her own stall where she can sell her items and included in her dreams is a grocery store.
