A loan of $200 helped to buy additional stocks of mineral water to increase her product inventory.

Andresabel's story

Andresabel is a resident of Tanza Cavite, Philippines. At the age of forty she manages the household while operating her business. She and her husband are continually working hard to meet their everyday expenses.

Andresabel is a mineral water distributor. She buys mineral water in five-gallon containers through wholesalers, then sells the water at retail. She also earns additional income by selling petroleum and diesel by the bottle. Her regular customers are her neighbors and the local community. She earns a minimum of 300 PHP in sales every day.

To help her boost her business, Andresabel is applying for an 8,000 PHP loan through CCT to buy extra mineral water. She expects to see her income gradually rise as she expands her business. She would like to offer other services or expand into selling other products so as to increase her income. Her goal in life is to see that her family is always well.

All CCT community clients, including Andresabel, are organized into fellowship groups of fifteen to thirty members who meet on a weekly basis. There they share stories of their work, repay microfinance loans and draw strength and inspiration from their study of the Word of God.
