Elizabeth's story

This is Elizabeth, 54, and a resident of Malibay, Pasay City, Philippines. She is married to Bernardino. She, together with her husband, manages their household while operating the business. At this time, she is working hard to continually provide income for their everyday expenses.

Elizabeth maintains a direct selling business. She sells clothing, footwear, undergarments, cosmetics and other products as well as the popular direct selling brands like Avon, Fuller life, Natasha, Boardwalk, Marikina Shoe Exchange, and other direct selling brands. A customers 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. Her regular customers are her neighbors and the local community. She earns a minimum of PHP 5000 in sales every week.

To help her continue operations of her business, she is requesting a PHP 30, 000 loan. She will utilize the loan to buy orders for her customers. She expects a boost in her business income as she expands her business.

Elizabeth dreams to have her own stall for all her products and hopes to give a good life to her family. She faithfully meets up with her co-fellowship members to share stories of her work every week and where he can also draw strength and inspiration from the Word of God he studies.
