Evangeline's story

This is Evangeline, 43, a resident of Malibay, Pasay, Philippines. She is happy and single and manages her household while operating the business. She is working hard to continually provide income for her everyday expenses.

Evangeline 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, 5 PHP-worth of cooking oil, or an egg. She earns by getting supplies at wholesale prices and selling individual pieces. Her regular customers are her neighbors and the local community. She earns a minimum of 500 PHP in sales every day.

She is requesting a loan of 25,000 PHP to help her continue the operation of her business. She will use the loan to buy groceries, toiletries, and beverages to expand her product inventory.

Evangeline hopes to open another store and dreams of having a good and peaceful life. She meets up with her co-fellowship* members to share stories of her life and business every week and she also draws strength and inspiration from the fellowship and the Word of God that 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.
