Estrella's story

This is Estrella, a 46-year-old resident of Manila, Philippines. Married to Diosdado, a construction worker, and a mother to her children, she manages their household while operating their business. At this time, she is working hard to continually provide income for their everyday expenses.

Estrella owns and manages their Side Car transportation business. She has one side car or bicycle cart that carries up to two passengers to their community destinations. Her regular customers are workers and employees in the community. She also sells rice for additional income, earning a minimum of 300 Philippine Pesos (PHP) in sales every day.

To help her continue operations of her business, she is requesting a Php15,000 loan for the maintenance of her side car. Estrella hopes to expand her business in the coming years and dreams of giving her children a good quality education.

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.
