Leonila raises poultry and then sells them. She also sells poultry supplies like Purina 3, Galfmanag, bird seeds, craca corn and other items. Her regular customers are her neighbors and the local community. She earns a minimum of Php 250 in sales every day.
She is now requesting a Php 20,000 loan. She will use the loan to buy more sacks of poultry supplies.
Leonila hopes to expand her business and dreams of having good health. She meets up with her co-fellowship members to share stories of her work every week. While there she draws strength and inspiration 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 repay micro finance loans.
