To improve her profit and to pay for the maintenance of the boarding house, Norma would like to ask for loan assistance. An amount of 12,000 PHP could help her in the renovation and beautification of their place, so that her regular boarders will choose to stay there for longer periods of time. She sincerely wants you to know her heartfelt thanks and appreciation for this assistance.
In the future, Norma hopes to refurnish her boarding house and make it concrete. She dreams for her children to finish their studies. Norma meets with her co-fellowship members* every week to share stories of her work 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 microfinance loans.
