Rencie's story

This is Rencie, 43, a resident of Manila, Philippines. She is married to Herman, a vendor and a father to her children. She, together with her husband, manages their own household while operating the business. At this time, she is working hard to continually provide income for their everyday expenses.

Rencie operates a buy and sell business. What she basically does is buy textiles from the textile factory, and sells them with a little profit. Her products are carpets, curtains, shower curtains and the like. Customers are attracted to buy due to the low selling prices and the many options she offers. She earns a minimum of 500 Philippine Pesos (PHP) in sales every day.

To help her continue operations of her business, she is requesting a 50,000 PHP loan. She will be utilizing the loan to buy additional stocks of textile items to expand her product inventory. She expects a boost in her business income as she expands her business.

Rencie hopes to be able to expand her business in the coming years and dreams to have her own vehicle. 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 repay Micro Finance loans.
