A loan of $600 helped to pay for sacks of rice for retailing.


Adelina's story

This is Adelina E., 49, a resident of Victoria Reyes, Dasmariñas, Cavite City, Philippines. She is married to Vicente E., a seafarer. She finished high school and decided to run a rice retailing outlet as a source of income for her family.

Adelina has been operating a rice retailing business for quite some time now. She buys sacks of rice at a wholesale price and retails the same per kilo with minimum mark up. In the Philippines, almost all Filipinos are rice consumers since rice has always been a part of their daily meals. Serving her local community, Adelina earns an estimated net income of around 12,000 Philippine Pesos (PHP) a month.

To help her continue operation of her business, she is requesting a 25,000 PHP loan. She plans to use this loan to buy more sacks of rice for retailing. She expects a boost in her business income as she expands her business.

Adelina always desires a happy and abundant life. She prays that her business will continue to grow and be of help not only to her family but also to her relatives and neighbors. As a CCT community partner, she faithfully attends the group's weekly fellowship meeting* where she can also draw strength and inspiration from the Word of God she studied.

*All CCT community members are organized into fellowship groups composed of 15 to 30 community partners that meet on a weekly basis. The fellowship groups gather to study the Word of God, build social capital, and pay microfinance loans.
