Melchora buys general merchandise from wholesalers, selling it at a small profit. Her products are children and women’s clothes and the like. Her customers, consisting of neighbors and the local community, are attracted to buy due to her low selling prices and the many options she offers. She earns a minimum of 300 Philippine Pesos (PHP) in sales every day.
To help Melchora continue operation of her business, she is requesting a Php10,000 loan to buy RTW products and merchandise items such as women and children's wear to expand her product inventory.
Melchora hopes for continued business success and dreams of having a good future. She meets up with her co-fellowship* members to share stories of her life and business every week and draw strength and inspiration from 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 who gather each week to study the Word of God, build social capital, and repay micro finance loans.
