Zenaida's story

Zenaida, 48, is a resident of Batasan, Quezon City, Philippines. She is a widow. She and her children manage their household while operating their business. Zenaida works hard to continually provide income for her everyday expenses.

Zenaida operates a meat stall. She buys meat from suppliers who deliver the meat to different market stalls. Her products are pork, beef and processed meat products. Many patrons prefer her products since they are assured of its freshness and cleanliness. Zenaida's regular customers are her neighbors and the local community. She earns a minimum of PHP 1,000 in sales every day.

To help her continue to operate her business, Zenaida is requesting a PHP 12,000 loan to buy additional supplies of pork, chicken and beef needed in her business.

Zenaida hopes that her business will continue to be successful, just as she fervently hopes that her children will be able to graduate one day and finish their studies. She meets up with her co-fellowship members weekly to share stories of her work and to 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.
