A loan of $250 helped to pay for more quantities of raw materials such as fabric, thread and other items needed for her tailoring business.

Gina's story

This is Gina, age 44, who is a resident of Caloocan in the Philippines. She is married to Victor and a mother to her children. She and her husband manage their household while operating a tailoring business. At this time, she is working hard to continually earn an income to pay for her everyday expenses.

Gina operates a tailoring business. She mainly offers curtains, bed sheets, blankets and other home-decorating items. Seasonal demands for clothing 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 members. She earns a minimum of PHP 500 in sales every day.

To help her continue operating her business, she is requesting a PHP 10,000 loan. She will utilize the loan to buy more quantities of raw materials such as fabric, thread and other items needed in her business. She expects a boost in her business income as she expands her business.

Gina hopes her business will grow and dreams of being 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 comprises 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.
