Emily's story

This is Emily, 45, a resident of Silang, Cavite, Philippines. She is married to Francis, a driver, and is a mother to her four children. Together with her husband and children she manages their own business while sustaining their everyday expenses.

Emily operates a school jeepney service for students. What happens is that the parents of the students pay a monthly fee and then every day, the driver will pick up the students from their homes and bring them to school; the same thing once school ends. She earns a minimum of PHP 650 in sales every day.

To help her continue operations of her business, she is requesting a PHP 12,000 loan. She will be utilizing the loan to buy spare parts and carry out maintenance of their jeepney unit.

Emily hopes to have a bigger school service and dreams that her children will finish their studies. She meets up with her co-fellowship members to share stories of her work every week where she 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 Micro-Finance loans.
