Milagros's story

This is Milagros; she is 40 years old and is a resident of Batasan, Commonwealth, Philippines. She is married to Floro and they have children. She and her husband manage their household while operating the business. She is working hard to continually provide income for their everyday expenses.

Milagros operates a variety store. In the Philippines, a variety store is a retail store that sells inexpensive items, often with a single price for all items in the store. It is the place to go to buy one sachet of shampoo, a PHP 5 worth of cooking oil, or an egg. She earns by getting supplies at wholesale prices and selling by piece. Her regular customers are her neighbors and the local community. She earns a minimum of PHP 500 in sales every day.

She is requesting a PHP 10,000 loan to help her continue operating her business. She will use the loan to buy groceries, toiletries, and beverages to expand her product inventory.

Milagros dreams for the continued success of her business and hopes for a good life. She meets her co-fellowship* members to share stories of her life and business every week and draw strength and inspiration from the fellowship and 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.
