Rosario's story

Rosario T. is 49 years old and has been a businesswoman for years. She is married to Alfredo, 52, who drives a motorized tricycle for a living. Two of their three children are now working and the youngest remains in grade school. This happy family lives in Maricaban, Pasay City.

For nine years now, Rosario has been buying and selling small basic household items, including decorated candles, dishwashing solutions, fabric conditioners and even diapers. She earns more than P12, 000.00 a month and even more when there is increased demand for her items, such as for her candles during All Saints’ Day, which is observed countrywide. She’s happy that her earnings can augment her husband’s income to help with their family’s daily needs.

Rosario is among the pioneer members of the Center for Community Transformation (CCT) Credit Cooperative who joined in the summer of 2002. She has just finished repaying a previous loan of P32,000.00 from the cooperative and is now asking for a new loan of P35,000.00 as additional capital for the continued growth of her business. She wishes to improve her business to be able to have an abundant life with her family.
