Ma. Martina
Ma. Martina is a resident of Malibay, Pasay, Philippines. She is 50 years old and happily married to Alberto, who works as a tricycle driver. God blessed them with loving children and only one remains studying. She and her husband are helping each other in working so they can give their family a good future.

Ma. Martina owns a computer shop. These computer shops are rented for Php 20.00 per hour. Still, some families don’t have their own computers so they go to computer shops to encode and print documents. Others rent to connect with their loved ones abroad, and others, especially the children and the youth, rent to play games. Normally, computer shops open at 8am and close at 7pm. Her regular customers are the children and youth of their community. She earns Php 400.00 a day.

She is requesting Php 25,000 that she will use to buy new units of computers and maintain the other units that she has.

Just as any other business owners, she is also hoping that her shop will continue to expand and have more customers and branches. She meets up with her co-fellowship* members to share stories of her life and business every week, where she also draws 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.

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 >>
