Jeanette's story

Jeanette S., 41, married to Precilo S., a construction worker, is making sure that her family has enough provisions for their daily needs. Blessed with three children, she makes sure that she helps her husband earn so that their family can have a better life. For some time she has been managing her own barbecue stall while also selling charcoal to her neighbors.



Jeanette has been a regular member of the Center for Community Transformation* (CCT) for more than a year now, regularly attending their weekly fellowship meetings and paying her weekly dues consistently. Because of her good repayment performance with her previous loans, she has been able to borrow quite a few times in CCT’s Cooperative. Jeanette is consistent in paying her dues because she has used the money she borrowed to expand and improve her business.



To ensure her continued business success, she is requesting a PHP 10,000 loan to buy the raw ingredients needed to continue production of her barbecue and charcoal businesses. Jeanette dreams that her enterprises will continue to grow so that she can provide for her children’s education.




* 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 who gather each week to study the Word of God, build social capital, and pay Micro Finance loans.
