A loan of $400 helped to purchase spare appliance-parts needed for her repair business.

Corazon's story

This is Corazon, 53, resident of Pasay City, Philippines. She is married to Candido, a repair technician and father to her five young-adult children, four of whom are already working while the youngest is in college. By the grace of God, she has managed to support all her children’s educational needs. As of the present time, she is working hard to be able to maintain her finances for her youngest child’s college education.

Corazon operates an appliance-repair shop. Her husband is the main technician while she handles finances, accounts, inventories and promotion. They offer repair and check-up of all types of appliances, like electric fans, washing machines, air-conditioning, and others. Her shop is located adjacent to her house. Her regular customers are her neighbors and the local community. She earns a minimum of 300 Philippine Pesos (PHP) in sales every day.

To help her continue the operation of her business, she is requesting a 17,000 PHP loan. She will use the loan to buy spare parts for the appliances they repair. She expects a boost in her business income as she expands her business.

Corazon hopes her business will grow and dreams of being able to give her children a 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 pay Micro Finance loans.
