Sunshine's story

This is Sunshine, 26 and a resident of Manila, Philippines. She is married to Richard, a dispatcher, and is a mother to her children. She, together with her husband, manages their own household while operating the business. At this time, she is working hard to continually provide income for their everyday expenses and her children’s studies.

Sunshine operates a buy and sell business. What she basically does is buy candy and toy products from wholesalers. She repacks them and sells them with a little profit. Her products are assorted candies, toys and other products of the like. Customers are attracted to buy due to the low selling prices and the many options she offers. Her regular customers are her neighbors and the local community. She earns a minimum of 300 Philippine Pesos (PHP) in sales every day.

To help her continue the operations of her business, she is requesting a 15,000 PHP loan. She will be utilizing the loan to buy more quantities of candies and toy products to expand her product inventory. She expects a boost in her business income as she expands her business.

Sunshine dreams to give her children a good and quality education as well as hopes to get a good and permanent stall for her business. She faithfully meets up with her co-fellowship* members to share stories of her work every week, and this is 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 pay Micro Finance loans.
