Haide's story

This is Haide, a resident of Tanza, Cavite, Philippines. She is married to Lito, a vendor, and they have children. With her husband, she manages their household while operating her business. She works hard to provide income for their everyday expenses.

Haide operates a business selling men's and women's clothes and other similar products. She buys merchandise from wholesalers, and then sells the products for a small profit. Customers are attracted to buy due to the low selling prices and the many options she offers. Her regular customers are her neighbors and the local community. She earns a minimum of 300 Philippine Pesos (PHP) in sales every day.

To help her continue operating her business, she is requesting a 20,000 PHP loan. She will utilize the loan to buy ready-to-wear merchandise, like polo shirts for men and women, in order to expand her product inventory.

Haide hopes that her business will get bigger and dreams to have more customers. She meets every week with her co-fellowship* members to share stories of her life and business 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 repay micro-finance loans.
