Ana's story

This is Ana, 49, a resident of Bacoor, Cavite, Philippines. She is married to Roberto and is the mother of their child. Together with her husband she manages their own household while operating the business. At this time, she is working hard to continually provide income for their everyday expenses.

Ana operates a doormat business. Her products are small rugs and doormats. She makes doormats out of excess textile cloth she buys from the factory. As rugs are a major part of Filipino housekeeping and cleaning, rugs are one of the most common products that can be bought, sometimes even from a peddler while you are riding in a speeding jeepney down the highway. She directly sells her products to her neighbors and the local community. She earns a minimum of PHP 200 in sales every day.

To help her continue operations of her business, she is requesting a PHP 15,000 loan. She will be utilizing the loan to buy more quantities of raw materials. She expects a boost in her business income as she expands her business.

Ana hopes to grow her business in the coming years and dreams to be able to give her family a good future through all her hard work in 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 the Word of God she 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.
