Veronica's story

This is Veronica, 52, and a resident of Tondo, Philippines. She is a mother to her children. She, together with her children, manages their household while operating her business. She works hard to provide income for their everyday expenses.

Veronica operates a variety store. In the Philippines, a variety store is basically a small convenience store, which retails groceries, toiletries and beverages to the local neighborhood. It is the place to go to buy shampoo, cooking oil, or an egg. She earns money by getting her supplies at wholesale prices and reselling by the piece. Her regular customers are her neighbors and the local community. She earns a minimum of Php500 in sales every day.

To help her continue to operate her business, she is requesting a Php32,000 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.

Veronica dreams of having a good life through all her hard work. She faithfully meets up with her co-fellowship* members to share stories of her work every week and she also draws strength and inspiration from the Word of God.

* 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.
