Ma. Liza's story

This is Ma. Liza, 33, a resident of Dasmariñas, Cavite, Philippines. She is married to Noli and a mother to her children. At this time, she is working hard to continually provide income for their everyday expenses.

Ma. Liza operates a variety store. In the Philippines, a variety store is basically a small convenience store which retails groceries, toiletries and beverages piecemeal to the local neighborhood. It is the place to go to buy one sachet of shampoo, Php5-worth of cooking oil, or an egg. She earns by getting supplies at wholesale prices and selling by the piece. Her regular customers are her neighbors and the local community. She earns a minimum of Php500 in sales every day.

To help her continue operations of her business, she is requesting a Php15,000 loan to buy more groceries, toiletries and beverages to expand her product inventory. She expects a boost in her business income as she expands her business.

Ma. Liza hopes to have a peaceful life and dreams of expanding her business. 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 who gather each week to study the Word of God, build social capital, and repay Micro Finance loans.
