A loan helped to procure two computer units to start her internet cafe business and buy additional stock for her store.

Lily Fe's story

In four years of operation, Lily Fe has improved her “sari-sari” or variety store business located in front of their house in Agdao, Davao City. She started with few items like sachets of shampoo, cookies, candies, and repacked condiments. Little by little, she added more supplies, and now she is already retailing rice, charcoal, beverages, and cellphone load. She also converted portion of their house into a boarding house to augment her income.

With this positive mindset, Lily Fe wants to make her business more profitable and pursue with her plan of opening an internet cafe. She plans to venture into internet cafe business. She will start with two computer units that she aims to expand gradually.

She and her husband, Romeo, are doing their best effort to reach their dream of having professional children. They aim to have sufficient resources not only for their family but also to extend help to other people in need.

She’s requesting for a loan worth PHP 50,000 to meet this purpose. She will also set aside some amount to buy additional merchandise for her store. She’s thankful that CCT is providing her along with her co-fellowship* members some valuable tips on how to manage her business properly. She also draws inspiration from their sharing of testimonies and reflection on 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.
