A loan of $300 helped to pay for additional stocks of supplies and products needed in her business.


May's story

This is May, 47, a resident of Pasay City, Philippines. She is married to Domingo, a mining employee, and a mother of her children. She, together with her husband, manages their own household while operating the business. At this time, she is working hard to continually provide income for their everyday expenses.

May retails processed meat product. What she basically does is buy processed meat products from wholesalers, then sells them per piece/pack for a profit. Products can range from ham, hotdogs, processed pork, and other products of the like. Customers are attracted to buy due to the low selling prices and the many options she offers. Her regular customers are her neighbors and the local community. She earns a minimum of PHP 300 in sales every day.

To help her continue the operations of her business, she is requesting a PHP 12,000 loan. She will be utilizing the loan to buy more quantities and varieties of products to expand her product inventory. She expects a boost in her business income as she expands her business.

May hopes to be able to expand soon, as she dreams to be 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 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 microfinance loans.
