Ruth's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to buy additional cloth, thread, needles and other materials needed for her sewing business.

Ruth's story

Ruth has previously received a number of loans from Kiva and the Center for Community Transformation (CCT), which have really sustained her tailoring business. She is truly glad that she was able to invest in this kind of business which not only enabled her to send her children to school but gave her fulfillment for doing what she loves most.

Again, Ruth hopes to avail herself of a loan to buy additional supplies of fabric, thread and other materials needed in sewing blouses, dresses, pants, etc. She values her loyal and increasing customers and puts her best effort to give the best service to them.

Ruth prays to see all her children finish their studies and pursue a bright future. Every week, she meets up with her co-fellowship* members to share stories of her work and to draw strength and inspiration from the Word of God which 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 Micro Finance loans.
