This is Annalie M., 25, who desires stability for her personal and family life. She is happily married to Joemarie M. and they are blessed with two children who are currently studying in public elementary and high school. Together they live on Rodriguez Street, Pasay City, Philippines.
Annalie has managed a computer shop for almost two years now. She rents her computers by the hour to her community for surfing, social networking, and even doing research for students. She earns an estimated net income of around 1000 Philippine Pesos (PHP) a month.
To help her continue operation of her business, she is requesting a 30,000 PHP loan. She is planning to use this loan to purchase two additional computer units. She expects a boost in her business income through the proper use of this loan.
Annalie prays that her children will become God fearing individuals and will be able to finish their studies up to college through her hard work on doing her business. She also desires a good and happy life for her entire family. As a CCT community partner, she faithfully attends the group's weekly fellowship meeting* where she can also draw strength and inspiration from the Word of God she studies.
*All CCT community members are organized into fellowship groups composed of 15 to 30 community partners that meet on a weekly basis. The fellowship groups gather to study the Word of God, build social capital, and pay microfinance loans.
