Feliciana G., age 54, is making sure that her family has enough provisions for their daily needs. She is married to Felicisimo G., a businessman, they are blessed with one child. She makes sure that she helps her husband earn so that their family can have a better life. She has been managing her own bakery for quite some time now.
Feliciana has been a regular member of Center for Community Transformation* (CCT) for more than a year now. She regularly attends their weekly fellowship meetings and pays her weekly dues consistently. Because of her good repayment performance with her previous loans, she was able to borrow quite a few times from CCT’s cooperative. She is consistent in paying her dues because she used the money she borrowed to expand and improve her bakery.
Now, with your help, she would like to apply for a PHP 10,000 loan. This amount will be used as a source of added capital to her expanding business. She will use her loan to buy equipment and expand her bakery.
She dreams that her business will continue to grow so that they can renovate their house and finish educating their children.
* 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 microfinance loans.
