Roberto's story

This is Roberto, 49, a resident of Silang, Cavite, Philippines. He is married to Lolita, a housewife and mother to their three children. By the grace of God, Roberto has managed to support his family's daily expenses.

Roberto operates a farm. He plants seasonal fruits that are native to the Philippines, like pineapples, bananas, and other Filipino fruit staples which are grown mostly in the southern region of Luzon. His regular customers are his neighbors and the local community. He earns a minimum of PHP 500 from sales every day.

To help him continue operations of his business, he is requesting a loan of PHP 11,000. He will be utilizing the loan to buy fertilizers, seeds, and other tools for the maintenance of the farm. He expects a boost in his business income as he expands his business.

As a CCT community partner, Roberto faithfully meets up with his co-fellowship* members to share stories of his work every week, where he can 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 pay Micro Finance loans.
