A loan of $1,125 helped to pay for grocery items, toiletries and beverages needed in her business.

Elmelyn's story

Elmelyn previously accessed a loan of 50,000 PHP that she used to purchase more quantities and varieties of grocery items and products needed in her business. Her earnings were a big help for her children’s education, as well as in their personal, household and business expenditures. She also has a piggery for additional income.

Elmelyn would like to apply for another 50,000 PHP loan 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 business will definitely help sustain her family’s daily needs and children’s education expenses. She looks forward to this financial increase with gladness and thankfulness in her heart.

Elmelyn hopes to have a grocery store and dreams to have a car. She meets with her co-fellowship* members to share stories of her life and business every week and to draw strength and inspiration from the fellowship and the Word of God.

*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 micro finance loans.
