This is Mary Joyce, 27, a resident of Intramuros, Philippines. Single, she manages her own household while operating the business. At this time, she is working hard to continually provide income for her everyday expenses.
Mary Joyce has a stall that sells curtains. She gets curtains from a tailoring company and then sells them at a profit. Her regular customers are her neighbors and the local community. She earns a minimum of 500 PHP in sales every day.
To help her to continue the operation of her business, she is requesting a 50,000 PHP loan. She will be utilizing the loan to buy more quantities of raw materials like fabric, thread and other materials for her business. She expects a boost in her business income as she expands her business.
Mary Joyce hopes to increase production and dreams of being able to give her family a good future through all of her hard work at her business. She faithfully meets up with her co-fellowship members to share stories of her work every week and to draw strength and inspiration from the Word of God that 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.
