Adora's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped to pay for computer parts and accessories, and for the maintenance of her computers as well.
Adora is 64, and a resident of GMA, Cavite, in the Philippines. She is married to Glicerio, who is her business partner. She has six children of which one is in college, three are already working and two are out of school. She, together with her husband, manages their own household while operating the business. She works hard to provide income to meet their daily personal and household needs and for their child’s education. Adora operates a computer rental shop. In the Philippines, very few people have their own computers. People go to an Internet Café for their business, school requirements and business documents. Adora rents out computers by the hour and offers printing and typing services. Her regular customers are her neighbors and the local community. She earns a minimum of 1,000 Philippine Pesos (PHP) in rentals every day. To help her improve her business, she is requesting a 50,000 PHP loan to buy computer accessories such as a printer, mouse and keypad and also to pay for the maintenance of her computers. It is important that all her computers are all working efficiently to ensure good service to her customers. Her income from her Internet Shop is a big help to support family’s basic needs. Adora aims to buy more personal computers to grow her business. She wants her child to finish college and save for her old age. She faithfully meets up with her co-fellowship* members to share stories of her work every week and where 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.
