Crispa's story

This is Crispa, 62, a resident of Taguig City, Philippines. She is already a widow. She manages her household while operating the business. At this time, she is working hard to continually provide income for her everyday expenses.

Crispa operates a salon business. She offers hair styling, hair grooming, manicure and pedicure, and other salon services. Her regular customers are her neighbors and the local community. She earns a minimum of 1,000 Philippine Pesos (PHP) in sales every day.

To help her continue operations of her business, she is requesting a PHP 30,000 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.

Crispa dreams of growing her business and maintaining her good health in the coming years. 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 pay microfinance loans.
