Floranie
This is Floranie, 34, a resident of Taguig City, Philippines. She is married to Ryan, a project coordinator, and together they manage their household while operating a business. She works hard to continually provide income for their everyday expenses.

Floranie operates an electronic gadget retail / wholesale business. She buys cell-phone units or other gadgets from suppliers, then she sells them with a little profit. Her products are mobile handsets, tablets, and other gadgets of that kind. She also offers watches, accessories, clothing, cosmetics, and electronic loading service (prepaid mobile phone minutes). Customers are attracted to buy, due to her low selling prices and the many options she offers. Her regular customers are her neighbors and the local community. She earns a minimum of 500 Philippine Pesos (PHP) in sales, every day.

To help her continue operating her business, she is requesting a PHP 35,000 loan. She will use the loan to buy an additional stock of mobile phone units, and other items to expand her product inventory. She expects a boost in her business income, as she expands her business.

Floranie hopes to have her own boutique or store, where she could house all her items. She also desires to become a real estate broker. She faithfully meets with her co-fellowship members* every week, to share stories of her work and to 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 repay Micro Finance 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 >>
