why my encryption shell script not working

I am trying to write a shell script which will use a text file as an argument to produce pgp encryted file.

Shell script name: encryptext.sh

This is the code of encryptext.sh
cd /home/project/source
gpg --verbose --armour --encrypt --recipient "IMS_L2" --output /home/project/target/$file.pgp $file
mv $file /home/project/backup

my input: ./encryptext.sh money.txt (in directory of /home/project/source)
my output: money.txt.pgp (in directory of /home/project/target)

Please kindly help and advise how to make it work.
