Jelisa's story

This is Jelisa, 51, a resident of Silang, Cavite, in the Philippines. She is single, and she manages her house while operating her business. At this time, she is working hard to continually provide income for her everyday expenses.

Jelisa operates a tailoring business. She mainly offers curtains, bed sheets, blankets, and other home trappings. Demands for clothing like uniforms and such are available all year round. She also does repairs and alterations. Her regular customers are her neighbors and the local community. She earns a minimum of PHP 500 in sales every day.

To help her continue operations of her business, she is requesting a PHP 50,000 loan. She will be using the loan to buy more quantities of raw materials like fabric, thread, and other items needed in her business.

Jelisa dreams of having another branch and becoming rich someday. She meets up with her co-fellowship* members to share stories of their lives and business every week. There she can also draw strength and inspiration from the fellowship and from the Word of God she studies.

* All CCT community partners / clients are organized into fellowship groups that meet weekly. 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.
