Jennifer's story

Jennifer, 31, is a resident of Bacoor, Cavite, Philippines. She is married to Levfelic, a driver, and has one child. She, together with her husband, manages their household while operating a variety store business. She is working hard to continually provide income for their everyday expenses.

Jennifer's business 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, a PHP 5 worth of cooking oil, or an egg. She gets supplies at wholesale prices and sells by the piece for a profit. 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 operating her business, Jennifer is requesting a PHP 14,000 loan. She will use 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.

Jennifer hopes to give her child a quality education and dreams to have a good life 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 it's 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.
