Delia's story

This is Delia, 52, a resident of Dasmariñas, Cavite City, Philippines. She is married to Faustino and is the mother of two children who are both already working. She, together with her husband and children, manages their household while operating the business. At this time, she is working hard to continually provide income for her everyday expenses.

Delia operates a food stall. In the Philippines, the whole working community and most of the families eat home-cooked meals only during evenings, when all of the family members are at home to take part of the meal. This is not only a usual family tradition but a matter of convenience and frugal living. It is considered a waste of money and time to spend cooking gas and food for one to two persons when buying cooked rice and viands cost less than raw food.

Her regular customers are her neighbors and the local community. She earns a minimum of PHP 500 in sales every day.

To help her continue operations of her business, she is requesting a PHP 13,000 loan. She will be using the loan to buy more quantities of products like meats, rice, vegetables, condiments and seasonings. She expects a boost in her business income as she expands her business.

Delia hopes to be able to expand the business soon. She also hopes to have her house renovated by the end of the year. She faithfully meets with her co-fellowship members to share stories of her work every week.

* 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 microfinance loans.
