This is Jesus, 66, a resident of Malibay, Philippines. He is married to Cristeta, a housewife, and is father to their children. He, together with his wife, manages their household while operating the business. At this time, he is working hard to provide for their everyday expenses.
Jesus operates a repair shop. He offers repair, check-up and reconditioning of electric fans, televisions, radios and other appliances.
To help him continue operations of his business, he is requesting a PHP 50,000 loan. He will be using the loan to buy supplies like wiring, putty paint and others of the like. He expects a boost in his business income as he expands his business.
Jesus dreams to expand his business through all his hard work. He faithfully meets up with his co-fellowship members to share stories of his work every week.
* 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 microfinance loans.
