Jenny's story

Jenny C., 29, a resident of Commonwealth, Quezon City, Philippines, is married to Cubreguito C., a vendor; she is the mother of two children, one of whom is in elementary school, while the youngest is toddling around at home. By the grace of God, Jenny has managed to support her older child's schooling. At this time, she is working hard to be able to send her children all the way through college, a dream of most Filipino parents like Jenny who herself has been a college undergraduate and believes that a college diploma is the best legacy parents can give to their children.

Jenny operates a variety store. In the Philippines, a variety store is basically a small convenience store which retails groceries, toiletries and beverages piecemeal to the local neighborhood. It is the place to go for to buy one sachet of shampoo, a Php5-worth of cooking oil, or an egg. Her store is located adjacent to her house, and her regular customers are her neighbors and the local community. She earns a minimum of Php300 in sales every day.

To help her continue operation of her business, Jenny is requesting a Php21,000 loan to buy more quantities of products including groceries, toiletries and beverages to expand her product inventory. She expects a boost in her business income as she expands her business.

Jenny dreams of being able to give her all her children a good and high quality education through all of her hard work on her business. She dreams of becoming a successful businesswoman someday, and faithfully meets up with her co-fellowship members to share stories of her work every week.
