Joey M., 38, is a hard-working father who makes sure that his family has enough provisions for their daily needs. Married to Irine M., a housewife, they are blessed with one child. He has been managing their variety store for four years.
Joey has been a regular member of Center for Community Transformation* (CCT) for more than four years now. He regularly attends their weekly fellowship meetings and pays his weekly dues consistently. Because of his good repayment performance with his previous loans, he was able to borrow ten times through CCT’s Cooperative. He is consistent in paying his dues because he used the money he borrowed to buy added stock for his store. His business lets him earn a profit of about $135 a month.
Now with your help, he would like to apply for a 10,000 PHP loan. This amount will be used as a source of added capital for his expanding business by buying additional stock for his store.
His priority in life is that he can raise his child well. He intends for his business to improve so that he can provide more for his family.
* 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.
