Felicisima
This is Felicisima, 52, a resident of Batasan, Philippines. She is married to Romeo, her business partner, and she is a mother to their children. She and her husband manage their household while operating the business. She is a hardworking mother and she keeps on thinking of venturing to other businesses to continually provide income for their everyday expenses.

Felicisima has a retailing business where she sells different products like dishwashing liquid, perfume and fabric conditioner. She is also selling Health and Wealth products. Her regular customers are her neighbors and the local community. She earns a minimum of 500 PHP in sales every day.

She is requesting a 30,000 PHP loan to help her continue in the operation of her business. She will use the loan to buy more dishwashing liquid, perfume and fabric conditioner.

Felicisima dreams to have more businesses and hopes to give a good life to her family. She faithfully meets up with her co-fellowship* members to share stories of her life and business every week and where she can also draw strength and inspiration from the fellowship and 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 repay microfinance loans.

Additional Information

More information about this loan

On Friday November 8, 2013, Super Typhoon Haiyan made its way through Southeast Asia, causing substantial damage to homes and businesses in areas of the Philippines. Given the state of devastation following this storm, borrowers living and working in these areas may have difficulty making repayments on their loans, thus making their Kiva loans higher risk. More information >>
