Judalyn is 57years old and a resident of Taguig, Philippines. She is a mother and is married to Hugo, a watch technician. Together with her husband they manages their own household while operating a business. At this time, she is working hard to continually provide income for their everyday expenses.
Judalyn operates a watch-repair shop. Her husband is the main technician while she handles finances, accounts, inventories and promotion of their business. They offer repair and check-up of watches. Her regular customers are her neighbors and the local community. She earns a minimum of 1,000 PHP in service fees every day.
To help her continue operations of her business, she is requesting a 13, 000 PHP loan. She will be utilizing the loan to buy spare parts of watches. She expects a boost in her business income as she expands her business.
Judalyn hopes to have another shop soon. She meets up with her co-fellowship members to share stories of her life and business every week and where she also draws strength and inspiration from the Word of God 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 pay microfinance loans.
