This is Jenneth, 37, resident of Dasmariñas, Cavite, Philippines. She is married to Nestor, a construction worker, and is a mother to their children. She, together with her husband, manages their household while operating the business. At this time, she is working hard to continually provide income for their everyday expenses.

Jenneth operates a rug-making business. She mainly offers rugs, from round palm-sized ones to much larger doormats and other crafts that most rug-makers create every day. As rugs are a major part of Filipino housekeeping and cleaning, rugs are one of the most common products that can be bought, sometimes even from a peddler while you are riding down the highway in a speeding jeepney. 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 operating her business, she is requesting a PHP 50,000 loan. She will be utilizing the loan to buy greater quantities of raw materials like fabric, thread and other materials for her business.

Jenneth hopes to expand her business so she can help her workers. She meets up with her co-fellowship* members to share stories of her life and business every week. There she can also 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. The fellowship groups gather each week to study the Word of God, build social capital, and pay microfinance loans.
