Elvie's story

Elvie is a married woman with three children, selling seafood products including fish, crabs, and shrimp in the market earning a good living. For five years she has been able to support her children's education through running the business.

She used her previous loan from GDMPC micro credit for her business and it was successfully repaid. Recently, she borrowed a new loan to purchase additional sea food to resell. Elvie is hopeful to generate more profit from her business to improve the general living of her family.
