Thelma's story

This is Thelma, 36, resident of Tanza, Cavite, Philippines. She and her partner Rey, a worker, care for their children and manage their household while operating a business. At this time, Thelma is working hard to provide income for her everyday expenses.

Thelma operates a repacking business. She buys products from wholesalers, repacks them, and sells them at a profit. She also sews. Her regular customers are neighbors and the local community. She earns a minimum of 500 PHP in sales every day.

To help her continue operating her business, Thelma is requesting a 12,000 PHP loan. She will use the loan to buy products like garlic, pepper, laurel, and candies. She expects a boost in her business income as she expands her business.

Thelma dreams that her business will get bigger, and she hopes to give her children a good life and education. Every week, she meets up with her co-fellowship members to share stories of her life and business and to draw strength and inspiration from studying the Word of God.

* 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.
