Priscila's story

This is Priscila, 41 years old, and a resident of Intramuros, Manila, Philippines. She is married to Mario, a driver, and is a mother to their children. She, with the help of her husband, manages their household while operating the business. At this time, she is working hard to continually provide income for their everyday expenses. Priscila operates a food stall. In the Philippines, the whole working community and most of the families only eat home-cooked meals during evenings where all of the family members are at home to take part in the meal. This is not only a usual family tradition but a matter of convenience and frugal living. It is considered a waste of money and time to cook food for one or two people when buying cooked rice and viands cost less than raw food. Her regular customers are her neighbors and the local community. She earns a minimum of Php 500 in sales every day. To help her continue operations of her business, she is requesting a Php 10,000 loan. She will be using the loan to buy more quantities of products like meats, rice, vegetables, condiments and seasonings. She expects a boost in her business income as she expands her business. Priscila hopes to expand her business and dreams to live a long life to guide her children. She meets up with her co-fellowship members to share stories of her life and business every week and where he can also draw strength and inspiration from the Word of God he 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.
