Arlene's story

This is Arlene, 40, a resident of Taguig City, Philippines. She is married to Randy, her business partner and father to her children. She, together with her husband, manages their household while operating the business. At this time, she is working hard to continually provide income for her everyday expenses.

Arlene operates a tailoring business. She mainly offers curtains, bed sheets, blankets, and other home products. Items subject to seasonal demand, like uniforms and such, are available all year round. She also does repairs and alterations. Her regular customers are her neighbors and the local community. She earns a minimum of 500 in sales every day.

To help her continue her business operations, she is requesting a 15,000 PHP loan. She will use the loan to buy more quantities of raw materials like fabric, thread and other items needed in her business. She expects a boost in her business income as she expands her business.

Arlene hopes her business grows and dreams to be able to give her family a good future 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 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.
