A loan of $925 helped to pay for grocery items, toiletries, and beverages needed in her business.


Elvira's story

Elvira owns and operates a variety store business to earn a living. She has been successful in this business for years, and she repaid her previous loan used for the business. She also finds ways to improve her income by offering prepaid load service for cellular phones and by selling frozen meat products.

Relative to this, she would like to take a new loan to increase her product inventory. She is requesting an amount of PHP 40,000 to buy more quantities and varieties of grocery items, toiletries, and beverages needed in her business.

In the future, Elvira wants her grocery store to grow more, and the same with her customers. She also desires for her youngest child to finish his studies. She meets up with her co-fellowship* members to share stories of her life and business every week and it's where 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 Micro Finance loans.
