A loan of $850 helped to invest in expanding a fish selling business.


Elvie's story

Elvie is from Poblacion, Aurora, Zamboanga del Sur, Philippines. She is now 31 years old, married and operates a fish vending stall in the town market. This crowded, noisy and messy place of business is not new to her anymore, since the time she entered and became one of the occupants. In spite of it all, Elvie loves the place. Her family has had alternative sources of income, but this is the one they've relied upon most. She makes 51,750 Philippine pesos (PHP) a month.

Elvie was invited by a friend to join GDMPC, which she did in 2010. She has requested a loan of 35,000 PHP to invest in expanding her fish selling business. It is the third loan transaction Elvie has completed with GDMPC. She longs to expand her business array and invest in related business sectors to increase her day-to-day inflows.
