A loan of $200 helped to buy grocery items, toiletries and beverages to sell in her business.

Jocelyn's story

Jocelyn is a resident of Dasmariñas, Cavite, Philippines. She is 46 years old and she is happily married to Rodolfo who works as maintenance staff. They are blessed with four loving children and all of them are still studying. Life indeed is hard but they were able to raise their children well and they are helping each other in working for their family.

Jocelyn owns a variety store. This is a small store that is connected to or just inside their house. This is where you can buy a sachet of shampoo or conditioner, a bar of soap, cooking oil or an egg, for example. She gets her products from a wholesaler at a lower price then she sells it per piece for a higher price for profit. Her regular customers are her neighbors, passerbys and the people in the community. She earns 300 PHP a day.

To be able to expand her inventory, she is requesting a 8,000 PHP loan to buy groceries, toiletries and beverages to expand her product inventory. This loan will be a great help for her to add more products to her store.

Jocelyn desires that her business will continue to grow and she is hoping to have more customers. She meets up with her co-fellowship* members to share stories of her life and business every week and where she can also draw strength and inspiration from the fellowship and 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 repay Micro Finance loans.
