Rosario's story

This is Rosario, 48, a resident of Silang, Cavite, Philippines. She is married and she has children. She, together with her children, manages their own household while operating the business. At this time, she is working hard to continually provide income for their everyday expenses and her children’s studies.

Rosario operates a fruit stand. She buys seasonal fruits that are native to the Philippines, like bananas which are grown mostly in the south region of Luzon. She also sells papaya and other Filipino fruit staples. Her regular customers are her neighbors and the local community. She earns a minimum of Php1,000 in sales every day.

To help her continue operations of her business, she is requesting a Php9,000 loan. She will be utilizing the loan to buy more quantities of fruits to expand her product inventory.

Rosario hopes that her business will grow bigger and dreams that all her children will finish their studies. 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.
