Emmalinda's story

Emmalinda is 42 years old, married, and has three children. She is a resident of Silang, Cavite, Philippines. She, together with her husband, manages their household while operating a business. At this time, she is working hard to provide income for their everyday expenses.

Emmalinda sells Ice candy snacks to the local neighborhood. She buys coconut, milk, and other flavorings in the market, prepares the snacks, and puts them in the freezer until they harden. Her ice candy is one of the summer treats kids and adults enjoy. She also sell ice tube and coconut juice for additional income. She earns a minimum of 500 PHP in sales every day.

To help her continue operations of her business, Emmalinda is requesting a loan for 30,000 PHP, which she will use to buy raw products and ingredients she uses in her business. She expects a boost in her business income as she expands her business.

Emmalinda hopes to expand her business and dreams of giving 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 her studies of God.

* 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 God, build social capital, and repay microfinance loans.
