This is Angelyn, 25, resident of Payatas, Quezon City, Philippines. She is married to Diosdado, a vendor, with whom she has one child. Together, Angelyn and her husband work hard for a secure future for their family.
Angelyn sells diesel fuel. Instead of going to the gasoline station where fuel is more expensive, drivers can just buy diesel from her with less hassle at a cheaper price. She earns a minimum of 40,000 PHP every week.
To help her continue her business operations, Angelyn is requesting a 10,000 PHP loan. She will use the loan to buy more diesel from her supplier. She expects a boost in her income as she expands her business.
Angelyn hopes that her business will continue to be successful, and she hopes to have a good life. Every week, she faithfully meets up with her co-fellowship* members to share stories about her work and to draw strength and inspiration from studying the Word of God.
* 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.
