Ruth's story

This is Ruth, 25, a resident of GMA, Cavite, Philippines. She is married to Jonjie, a sales agent, and is a mother. 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.

Ruth operates a piggery. She earns by selling live hogs to meat dealers. Sometimes they have the pigs slaughtered and sold in the market. Aside from this, she also cooks breakfast meals for additional income. Her regular customers are her neighbors and the local community. She earns a minimum of Php 1,200 in sales every week.

To help her continue operations of her business, she is requesting a Php 15, 000 loan. She will be utilizing the loan to buy feed and additional hogs. She expects a boost in her business income as she expands her business.

Ruth hopes to give her children a good life and a good education by the grace of God. She faithfully meets up with her co-fellowship* members to share stories of her work every week, and it is where she can also draw strength and inspiration from the Word of God that 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.
