Teresita 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 in CCT’s Cooperative. She is consistent in paying her dues. She used the money that she borrowed to expand and improve her businesses.

To ensure the success of her business, she would like to apply for a PHP 8,000 loan. This amount will be used as a source of added capital to her expanding business by buying more quantities and designs of clothing to replenish her current inventory. She also will invest some of the loan to do advance orders on her cosmetics direct-selling line.

She dreams that her business will continue to grow so that she can provide her children with further education.


* 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.
