Antonietta's story

Filipinos are usually compared to bamboo trees due to their resiliency and strength. They are bent but not broken. Trials make them more persistent and solid. They also gather strength through togetherness and camaraderie. This is the exact description of how Antonietta from Tigbauan, Iloilo was able to pass through different trials that came her way. Her daughter suffered from endometriosis and her grandson also got a terrible illness. Her family had a huge debt before but they were able to pay it off little by little. Antonietta lives in Tigbauan, Iloilo with her children and grandchildren. She owns a variety store that also suffered from some losses before. She has recovered it eventually and today she is planning to add more supplies. She is also retailing cellphone load though e-load which is very popular in the Philippines. Income from her business can now support their day to day expenses. Furthermore, her son is planning to work abroad to earn better wages. Antonietta’s whole family is saving for the needed placement fee for the overseas job. She is requesting for a PhP 40,000 loan to buy more supplies particularly soft drinks and other beverages. Part of the loan will be set aside for her son’s placement fee. She’s hoping that God will use you to extend support to her and her family. Your help will be very much appreciated. Antonietta is always inspired to meet with her co-fellowship* members every week to share stories of her life and business. They draw strength and inspiration from the fellowship and 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 pay Micro Finance loans.
