A loan of $600 helped to buy groceries for her variety store.


Evelyn's story

Evelyn R., 56, is making sure that her family has enough provisions for their daily needs. Married and blessed with a child, she makes sure that she helps her husband earn enough so that their family can have a better life. She has been managing her own variety store for quite some time now.


Evelyn has been a regular member of Center for Community Transformation* (CCT) for more than a year now. She regularly attends their weekly fellowship meetings and pays her weekly dues consistently. Because of her good repayment performance with her previous loans, she was able to borrow quite a few times in CCT’s cooperative. She is consistent in paying her dues because she used the money she borrowed to expand and improve her variety store.


To ensure the success of her business, she would like to apply for a PHP 27,000 loan. This amount will be used as added capital for her expanding business, enabling her to buy groceries needed to replenish and maintain her variety store.


She dreams that her business will continue to grow so that she can provide for her child’s education.


* All CCT community partners/clients are organized into fellowship groups that meet on a weekly basis. A fellowship group is composed of 15 to 30 community partners. The fellowship groups gather each week to study the word of God, build social capital, and pay microfinance loans.
