Felina's story

This is Felina, 50, a resident of Taguig, Philippines. She is married to Christopher, a security guard, and a mother. Felina and her husband manage their household while operating the business. At this time, she is working hard to continually provide income for their every day expenses.

Felina operates a school/office supply business. It is where one can buy school supplies, like pens, bond paper, posterboards, etc., without going to a bookstore. She gets the supplies at wholesale prices and sells them by the piece. She uses a pedicab to sell her products. Her regular customers are her neighbors and the local community. She earns a minimum of 500 PHP in sales every day.

To help her continue operations of her business, she is requesting a 12,000 PHP loan. She will be utilizing the loan to expand her school supply product inventory. She expects a boost in her business income as she expands her business.

Felina wants her business to prosper 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 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 repay Micro Finance loans.
