Dominga's story

This is Dominga, 48, a resident of Batasan, Quezon City, Philippines. She is married to Segundino and a mother to her children. Dominga and her husband manage their household while operating their tailoring business. She works hard to continually provide income for her family’s everyday expenses. Dominga mainly makes curtains, bed sheets, blankets, and other home trappings as well as meeting seasonal demands for clothing such as uniforms. She also does repairs and alterations and her regular customers are her neighbors and the local community. Dominga earns a minimum of 500 PHP in sales every day.

Dominga is requesting a 20,000 PHP loan to buy more quantities of raw materials such as fabric, thread and other items needed to continue her business. In the future, she hopes to expand her business and become a factory. Dominga meets up weekly with her co-fellowship* members to share stories of her life and business and draw strength and inspiration from fellowship and studying the Word of God.

* 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 who gather to study the Word of God, build social capital, and pay microfinance loans.
