A loan of $300 helped to pay for grocery items and other products needed in her business.


Rosana's story

This is Rosana, who is 40 years old and a resident of Silang, Cavite, Philippines. She is married to Placido and a mother to her children. She and her husband manage their household while operating a business. At this time, she is working hard to continually provide income for their everyday expenses.

Rosana operates a variety store. In the Philippines, a variety store is basically a small convenience store, which retails groceries, toiletries and beverages piecemeal to the local neighborhood. It is the place to go to buy one sachet of shampoo, PHP 5's worth of cooking oil, or an egg. She profits by buying supplies at wholesale and selling by the piece. 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 12,000 loan. She will be using the loan to buy groceries, toiletries, and beverages to expand her product inventory. She expects a boost in her business income as she expands her business.

Rosana hopes to grow her business and dreams of givng her family a good future through all her hard work on her business. She faithfully meets up with her co-fellowship* members every week to share stories of their work. It 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 repay Micro Finance loans.
