Cristia's story

This is Cristia, 62. She is a resident of Taguig City, Philippines. She is married to Salvador, self-employed and a mother to her children. She manages their household while operating the business. At this time, she is working hard to continually provide income for her everyday expenses.

Cristia operates an LPG business. What she basically does is buy Liquefied Petroleum Gas tanks from wholesalers, then sells them per tank with a little profit. LPG tanks can range from small to regular size. Her regular customers are her neighbors and the local community. She earns a minimum of 600 Philippine Pesos (PHP) in sales every day.

To help her continue operations of her business, she is requesting a Php 50,000 loan. She will be utilizing the loan to buy more stock of LPG tanks to expand her product inventory. She expects a boost in her business income as she expands her business.

Cristia hopes her business will grow in the coming years and dreams to give a good future to her family through all her hard work on her business. She faithfully meets up with her co-fellowship members to share stories of her work every week, and this is 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 microfinance loans.
