Janet's story

This is Janet, 52, resident of Manila, Philippines. She is married to Mario and is mother to her children. She together with her husband manage their household while operating a business. At this time, she is working hard to continually provide income for their everyday expenses.

Janet 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, 5 PHP worth of cooking oil, or an egg. She earns by getting supplies at wholesale prices and selling by the piece. Her regular customers are her neighbors and people in the local community. She earns a minimum of PHP 500 in sales every day.

To help her continue operations of her business, Janet is requesting a PHP 18,000 loan. She will be utilizing 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.

Janet hopes that her children will have a good future and dreams that her business will continue to grow 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 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.
