Bizard's story

Bizard E., 35, is married to Marlyn E. and together they are blessed with two children. The elder is studying in high school and the younger is in elementary school. The family lives in Dasmariñas, Cavite, a province just south of Manila.


Bizard E. is a sewer and does furniture upholstery. He has been a sewer for 17 years.


A member of Center for Community Transformation* for more than a year, he has already received six loans from CCT because of good attendance in their weekly fellowship meetings and his regular payment of dues. With the added capital that he received from CCT, his business grew and now he earns 12500 PHP net profit per month.


Because he sees that his business is flourishing, he now wants to further expand his business by applying for a 16000 PHP loan so that he can use it as added capital to buy more raw materials for making more furniture.


He prays that God will continually bless his business so that someday he can have his own upholstery shop full of clients and earn enough money for his kids to finish their studies until they graduate in college.


* 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
