A loan of $300 helped to pay for grocery items and products needed in her business.

Elvie's story

This is Elvie. Her previous loan was a big help in her business. She was able to buy more products for her variety store. She has had this business for three years now. She and her husband, who is a driver, work hard to provide income for their everyday needs.

She would like to apply for another 12,000 PHP loan for her to buy groceries, toiletries, beverages, and other products to add to her inventory. The more items displayed at the store the better. More items to sell will result in better profit. Her profits from her business will definitely help sustain her family’s daily needs and her children’s education expenses. She looks forward to this financial increase with gladness and thankfulness in her heart.

Elvie dreams that her business will continue to grow and hopes that her children will finish their studies. She meets up with her co-fellowship* members to share stories of her life and business every week, when she can also 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. The fellowship groups gather each week to study the Word of God, build social capital, and repay microfinance loans.
