A loan of $1,225 helped to pay for additional stock of used-but-quality clothes.

Carolina's story

This is Carolina. Her previous loan was a big help in her business. She was able to buy the grocery items that she needed in her grocery store. She also started a new business where she sells used-but-quality clothes also called 'ukay-ukay' in the Philippines. She is more focused on this business now. She also has a piggery. She and her husband are working hard to provide for their everyday needs.

She would like to apply for another loan, this time for 50,000 PHP to buy additional stocks of used-but-quality clothes. The more items displayed at the store the better. More items to sell will result in better profit. Her profits from business will definitely help her to cover her daily needs and the educational expenses of her daughter. She looks forward to this financial increase with gladness and thankfulness in her heart.

Carolina's dream is for her new business to grow and she is hoping that her daughter will finish her studies. She is active in attending the weekly fellowship* as it helps a lot in learning from the Bible. Before becoming a member of CCT, Carolina never opened her Bible, but she does now as it strengthens her spiritual life.

* 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 microfinance loans.
