Vivian's story

This is Vivian, 42, a resident of Cabrera, Pasay, Philippines. She is married to Anastacio, a vendor. She, 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.

Vivian maintains a direct selling business. She sells clothing, footwear, undergarments, cosmetics, and other products through popular direct selling brands like Avon, Fuller Life, Natasha, Boardwalk, Marikina Shoe Exchange, and others. A customer's order is paid for in cash by the dealer and then given to the customer with a one-month-to-pay credit. Dealers' prices are lower than those in the catalogue, and these are the profits that dealers are depending on as their income. Her regular customers are her neighbors and the local community. She earns a minimum of PHP 5000 in sales every week.

To help her continue operating her business, she is requesting a PHP 20,000 loan. She will be utilizing the loan to buy orders for her customers. She expects a boost in her income as she expands her business.

Vivian hopes that her business will continue to be successful and dreams of having a new house. She faithfully meets with her co-fellowship members to share stories of her life and business every week and also to 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.
