Edwina's story

This is Edwina, 43, a resident of Dasmariñas, Cavite, Philippines. She is married to Alfredo, a vendor, and a mother to her children. She and her husband manage their household while operating the business. At this time, she is working hard to continually provide income for their everyday expenses.

Edwina operates a school/office supplies business where one can buy school supplies including pens, bond paper, cartolina and the like. She gets the supplies at wholesale prices and sells them by the piece. Her store is located adjacent to her house, and 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, Edwina is requesting a Php 17,000 loan to buy school supplies to expand her product inventory. She expects a boost in her business income as she expands her business.

Edwina dreams of having a vehicle that she can use in her business. She faithfully meets up with her co-fellowship* members to share stories of her work every week and 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.
