This is Jason, 34, resident of Silang, Cavite, Philippines. He is married to Mylyn, a sales consultant, and they have two children. He, together with his wife, manages their household while also operating the business. At this time, he is working hard to continually provide income for their everyday expenses.
Jason operates a poultry supply store where he sells different supplies mostly for cocks. He sells the feed by kilo and his regular customers are his neighbours and the local community. He earns a minimum of PHP 500 in sales every day.
To help him continue the operation of his business, Jason is requesting a PHP 20,000 loan. He will be utilizing the loan to buy more feed and other supplies needed to expand his product inventory. He expects a boost in his business income as he expands his business.
Jason hopes to grow his business and dreams to be able to give his family a good future by the grace of God. He meets up with his co-fellowship* members to share stories of his 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 repay Micro Finance loans.
