Felix's story

Felix, 48, is a resident of Silang, Cavite, Philippines. He is married to Agripina, a housewife, and father to his children, who are all employed. With his wife and children, he manages their household while operating a processed meat business. At this time, he is working hard to continually provide income for their everyday expenses.

The processed meat store is where one can buy processed and frozen meat like hot dogs, ham, and the like. Felix buys processed meat at wholesale prices and sells retail by the kilo. His store is located adjacent to his house. His regular customers are his neighbors and the local community. He earns a minimum of PHP 500 in sales every day.

To help him continue operating his business, he is requesting a PHP 20,000 loan. He will use the loan to buy additional processed and frozen meat products to expand his product inventory. He expects a boost in his business income as he expands his business.

Felix hopes to be able to expand soon, just as he hopes to support his children's schooling up to college level. He faithfully meets up with his co-fellowship* members to share stories of his work every week and to also draw strength and inspiration from the Word of God he 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 Micro Finance loans.
