Charlita's story

This is Charlita, 47, a resident of Malibay, Pasay City, Philippines. Her husband is Raul, an instructor, and they have six children. She, together with her husband and children, manages their household while operating the business. At this time, she is working hard to continually provide income for her everyday expenses.

Charlita operates a salon business. She offers hair styling, hair grooming, manicure, pedicure, and the like. Her regular customers are her neighbors and the local community. She earns a minimum of 600 Philippine Pesos (PHP) in sales every day.

To help her continue operations of her business, she is requesting a PHP 21,000 loan. She will be utilizing the loan to buy supplies for her salon like shampoo, hair treatment creams and oils, and other things needed for her business. She expects a boost in her business income as she expands her business.

Charlita hopes her business will continue over the coming years and dreams of being able to give her children a good and high quality education through all her hard work on her business. She faithfully meets up with her co-fellowship* members to share stories of her work every week and 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.
