This is Hilda, 41, a resident of Taguig, Philippines, married to Edison, a driver, and a mother to her children. She and the children manage her household while operating the business. At this time, she is working hard to continually provide income for her everyday expenses.

Hilda operates a food stall selling snacks like banana cue, a popular snack food in the Philippines consisting of deep-fried bananas coated in caramelized brown sugar. Banana cue is made from Saba bananas, usually skewered on a bamboo stick, and sold on the streets. She is also a tricycle operator. Her regular customers are her neighbors and the local community. She earns a minimum of Php 500 in sales every day.

To help her continue operations of her business, she is requesting a Php 15,000 loan to buy bananas, sugar, oil and gas.

Hilda hopes that her business will expand soon and dreams of having a good life. She meets up with her co-fellowship members to share stories of her work 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 pay micro finance loans.
