Elvira's story

This is Elvira, a 39-year-old resident of Bacoor, Cavite City, Philippines, a mother of three children, and wife of Sonny, a driver. She and Sonny manage their household while operating the business. At this time, she is working hard to continually provide income for their everyday expenses.

Elvira sells clothing, footwear, undergarments, cosmetics and other products through popular direct-selling brands such as Avon, Fuller life, Natasha, Boardwalk, Marikina Shoe Exchange, and others. A customer's order is bought in cash by the dealer and then given to the customer with a one-month-to-pay credit. Dealer’s prices are lower than those in the catalogue, and these are the profits that dealers are investing as their income. Elvira's regular customers are her neighbors and the local community, and she earns a minimum of 3000 Philippine Pesos (PHP) in sales every week.

To help her continue operations of her business,Elvira is requesting a Php 11, 000 loan to buy merchandise items and orders for her customers. She expects a boost in her business income as she expands her business.

Elvira hopes to grow her business in the coming years and dreams of giving all of her children a good and high quality education through her hard work. She faithfully meets up with her co-fellowship members to share stories of her work every week and draw strength and inspiration from the Word of God she studies.

* 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 gathering each week to study the Word of God, build social capital, and pay Micro Finance loans.
