Lina's story

Life is hard according to Lina of Malabon, Philippines, but life goes on. As it goes on, she has to keep her faith that things are just temporary and that things will get better. She is married to Xandie who works hard as a security guard and they have children who are still studying. Lina has a piggery which started seven years ago. She also has a variety store where she sells different grocery items per piece or per sachet.

To help her continue and expand her business she would like to acquire P25,000. She will use the money to buy feed and renovate her piggery. Part of the loan will go to her variety store in buying grocery items. She would like to thank the generous lenders that will support her business. She dreams that all her children will finish their education.

Lina is a member of the Center for Community Transformation and meets weekly with her fellowship partners to share her life’s testimony and business experience with her fellowship members. She also draws strength and inspiration from the fellowship and listening to the Word of God. A fellowship group is composed of 15 to 20 members. The fellowship groups gather each week to study the Word of God, build social relationship among partners, and pay Micro Finance loans.
