Cecilia's story

This is Cecilia, 50, resident of Silang, Cavite, Philippines. She is married to Ernesto, a farmer, and she is a mother to her children. She and her husband manage their own household while operating the business. At this time, she is working hard to continually provide income for their everyday expenses. Cecilia operates an ornamental plant business. She grows garden plants that are native to the Philippines such as ylang-ylang, golden shower, dahlias, a variety of hanging plants, and others. Her regular customers are local tourists, neighbors, and the nearby community. She earns a minimum of PHP 300 in sales every day.

To help her continue the operations of her business, she is requesting a PHP 13,000 loan. She will be utilizing the loan to buy gardening materials and supplies such as seed and fertilizer needed in her business. She expects a boost in her income as she expands her business.

Cecilia hopes to expand her business. She meets up with her co-fellowship members to share stories of her work every week, and 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 Micro Finance loans.
