Lolita's story

This is Lolita, 37, a resident of Manila, Philippines. She is married to Larson, an employee, and is the mother of two children. Together with her husband, Lolita manages their household and operates a business. At this time, she is working hard to provide income continuously, for their everyday expenses.

Lolita owns and operates a food stall. She sells snacks, like french fries, barbecue and other street foods, which sell very well, especially from 3:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. She also has a water distribution business for extra income. Her regular customers are her neighbors and the local community. She earns a minimum of 300 PHP in sales, every day.

To help her continue the operation of her business, she is requesting a 25,000 PHP loan. She will use the loan to buy more of the raw products and supplies she uses to serve her customers. She expects a boost in her business income, as she expands her business.

Lolita dreams of being able to give her children a good, high quality education through all her hard work on her business. She faithfully meets with her co-fellowship members every week, where she can share stories of her work, 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 pay Micro Finance loans.
