Nenita
This is Nenita, 52, a resident of Manila, Philippines. She is married to Saturnino, her business partner, and she is a mother to their children. She, together with her husband and children, manages their household while operating the business. At this time, she is working hard to continually provide income for their everyday expenses.

Nenita operates a computer rental shop. In the Philippines, very few people own their own computers. Thus there is a need for them, especially for students who need to do their research and papers. She rents out computers by the hour and offers printing and typing services. Her regular customers are her neighbors and the local community. She earns a minimum of 500 Philippine Pesos (PHP) in sales every day.

To help her continue operations of her business, she is requesting a PHP 37,000 loan to buy new computer units, spare parts and accessories needed in her business. She expects a boost in her business income as she expands her business.

Nenita hopes to be able to expand soon, just as she dreams of being able to give her family a good future through all her hard work in her business. She faithfully meets up with her co-fellowship* members to share stories of her work every week and 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 pay Micro Finance loans.
