A loan of $250 helped to pay for towels needed in her business.

Jessica's story

This is Jessica, 20, a resident of Intramuros, Manila, Philippines. She is married to Alvin, a vendor, and they have a child. She and her husband manage their household as they both work hard to provide for their everyday expenses.

She sells towels like face towels, bathroom towels and hand towels. Her regular customers are her neighbors and the local community. She earns a minimum of 1,000 Philippine Pesos (PHP) in sales every day.

Jessica is requesting a loan amounting to 10,000 PHP that she will use for buying different towels such as face towels, hand towels and bathroom towels.

She hopes that her business will continue to grow and dreams to have a good life. She meets up with her co-fellowship* members to share stories of her work every week, and this is where she can also draw 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.
