A loan of $300 helped to buy materials needed to make wallets and ingredients to make peanut butter.


Evelyn's story

Evelyn is 54 years old and lives in Payatas, Philippines. She is married and a mother, and earns a living by making wallets out of straw. She works hard because she wants her wallets to be high quality. She supplements her income by making peanut butter. Her regular customers are her neighbors and she earns a minimum of 500 Philippine Pesos (PHP) in sales every day. She is requesting a loan for 12,000 PHP to buy the supplies she needs to make wallets and ingredients to make peanut butter. She dreams that her businesses will continue to grow and expand, and meets up with her co-fellowship* members to share stories of her life and business every week and draw strength and inspiration from her religion.

* 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 who meet weekly to study religion, build social capital, and repay loans.
