Fe's story

This is Fe, 55-years old, and a resident of Pasay City, Philippines. She is married to Demetrio, a caddie boy, and mother to four children. Two are already working while the other two are still studying in high school. Fe, together with her husband, manage their own household while operating the business. At this time, she is working hard to continually provide income for their everyday expenses.

Fe has been buying and selling golf balls for several years. She buys the balls at wholesale prices, and then sells them at a piece rate. Her store is located outside the Philippine Navy golf course in Fort Bonifacio, which is very accessible to all golf players, who are her immediate customers. Aside from this, she also earns additional income from her small variety store. She earns a minimum of 1000 Philippine Pesos (PHP) in sales every day.

To help her continue the operations of her business, she is requesting a PHP 32,000 loan. She will be utilizing the loan to buy more quantities of quality golf balls to sell. She knows that having a lot of stock will attract more customers to her store. She expects a boost in her business income as she expands her business.

Fe hopes her business grows and dreams to be able to give her children a good future, and high quality education through all her hard work. She faithfully meets up with her co-fellowship* members to share stories of her work every week. She can also 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 repay Micro Finance loans.
