Myrna's story

This is Myrna, 39, resident of Dasmariñas, Cavite, Philippines. She is married to Melvin, a jeepney driver and a mother to their children. She, together with husband, manages their own household while operating the business. At this time, she is working hard to continually provide income for their everyday expenses.

Myrna operates a rug-making business. She mainly offers rugs, from those round palm sized ones, to the much larger doormats and other crafts that most rug-makers come up every day. As rugs are a major part of Filipino housekeeping and cleaning, rugs are one of the most common products that can be bought, sometimes even from a peddler while you are riding in a speeding jeepney down the highway. She also sells different condiments. Her regular customers are her neighbors and the local community. She earns a minimum of Php500 in sales every day.

To help her continue operations of her business, she is requesting a Php10, 000 loan. She will be utilizing the loan to buy more quantities of raw materials like fabric, thread and other materials for her business.
Myrna dreams to expand her business and dreams to give her children a good life and education. She meets up with her co-fellowship members to share stories of her life and business 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.
