Virginia's story

This is Virginia, 49, a resident of Manila, Philippines. She is married to Remeo, a signboard vendor, and is the mother of four children. She and her husband manage their own household while operating the business. Virgina works hard to continually provide income for the family's everyday expenses. Virginia operates a business making signboards, mainly offering signboards used in jeepneys and buses. She buys her materials and supplies for signboard making and manufactures different types. Her regular customers are utility vehicle owners and drivers. Virgina earns a minimum of PHP 500 in sales every day. To help her continue operations of her business, Virginia is requesting a PHP 34,000 loan, which she will use to buy supplies and materials for her business. She expects a boost in her business income as she expands her business. Virginia hopes to increase production and dreams of being able to give her her family a good future through all her hard work on her business. She faithfully meets up with her co-fellowship* members weekly 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 microfinance loans.
