Arlyn dreams to expand her business and have her own stall for her growing business. She hopes that her children will finish their studies. She meets up with her *co-fellowship members every week to share stories of her life and business and to 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.
