Roberto's story

Roberto, 42, is a resident of Tanza, Cavite, Philippines. He is single and works hard to support himself and cover his everyday expenses.

Roberto operates a food stall and sells fish balls. In the Philippines, fish balls are commonly sold on street sidewalks. They are served skewered and can be dipped with different kinds of sauces. Fish balls are somewhat flat in shape and often made with the meat of a cuttlefish. His other products include squid balls and quail eggs. His regular customers are his neighbors and the local community. He earns a minimum of Php 200 in sales every day.

To help him continue operating his business, he is requesting a Php 11,000 loan. He will use the loan to buy more quantities of fish ball products and other ingredients needed in his business. He expects a boost in his business income as he expands his business.

Roberto hopes to be able to expand soon. He faithfully meets with his co-fellowship* members to share stories of his work week and also draws strength and inspiration studying the Word 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 the Word of God, build social capital, and repay Micro Finance loans.
