This is Susan H., 43 years old. She has been making processed meats like sausages and hams in the comfort of her home for the last three years. She lives in Ascoville, Caloocan City with her husband, Robert, 60, and their only child.
Susan’s products appeal to a lot to her customers so that she always finds herself working overtime to meet their demands. She is thankful to the Center for Community Transformation (CCT) Credit Cooperative for providing her loans which she has used to buy raw materials like fresh meat and seasonings. She now earns at least P6,000 a month, aside from her additional income being a tutor in the neighborhood. She has a teacher’s education back in college.
Susan uses her profits to support the daily needs of her family. She applied for a fresh loan from CCT in the amount of P8,000 as additional capital for her business. She also wishes to establish a restaurant soon.
