Epifania's story

This is Epifania, 61, a resident of Pasay City, Philippines. She has five children. Two of the children are already enrolled in college and three stay at home managing the household and helping her with the business. By the grace of God, Epifania has managed to support her children's schooling up to college level. At this time, she is working hard to provide continuous income for their everyday expenses.

Epifania operates a computer rental shop. In the Philippines, very few people own their own computers. Thus, there is a need for them, especially for students who need to do their research and papers. She rents out computers by the hour and offers printing and typing services. Her regular customers are her neighbors and the local community. She earns a minimum of PHP 250 in sales every day.

To help her continue operating her business, she is requesting a PHP 20,000 loan. She will use the loan to buy additional set of computer parts & accessories needed for the shop. She expects a boost in her business income as she expands her business.

Epifania dreams of being able to renovate her house soon, with all of her work with the business. She faithfully meets up with her co-fellowship* members to share stories of her work every week and were she draw strength and inspiration from the word of God she studies.

* 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.
