Rosario operates a buy and sell business. What she basically does is buy general merchandise from wholesalers and resell it with a little profit. Her products are men and women’s clothes and other similar products. Customers are attracted to buying due to the low prices and the many options she offers. Her regular customers are her neighbors and the local community. She earns a minimum of 300 Philippine Pesos (PHP) in sales every day.
To help her continue operation of her business, she is requesting a PHP 15,000 loan. She will use the loan to buy ready-to-wear products to expand her product inventory. She expects a boost in her income as she expands her business.
Rosario dreams of being able to expand her business and hopes to have good health. She faithfully meets up with her co-fellowship* members every week to share stories of her work and to draw strength and inspiration from the Word of God, which 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 repay microfinance loans.
