Irenea's story

This is Irenea, 52, resident of Biga, Silang Cavite, Philippines. She is married to Ignacio, a farmer, and a mother to their children, together with her husband they manage their own household while operating the business. At this time, she is working hard to continually provide income for their everyday expenses.

Irenea operates a market stall. She sells vegetables, raw products and condiment items in the community market. She buys quantities of vegetable products and other common items used in cooking and sell them by the kilo or per piece. Her regular customers are her neighbors and the local community. She earns a minimum of PHP 800 in sales every day.

To help her continue operating her business, she is requesting a PHP 22,000 loan. She will be utilizing the loan to buy more vegetable products and condiments to expand her product inventory. She expects a boost in her business income as she expands her business.

Irenea hopes to be able to expand soon. She faithfully meets up with her co-fellowship* members to share stories of her work every week and where 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.
