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

A loan helped to buy more stock for her stall.

Celma's story

This is Celma. She previously borrowed 50,000 PHP which she used to buy meat, rice, vegetables, condiments, seasonings, etc. for her food stall. Her earnings have been a big help in covering the education of her children and the family’s personal, household and business expenses.

Celma would like another 50,000 PHP loan from CCT to buy more stock for her stall. Her profits will definitely help her to sustain her daily needs and educational expenses of her children. She looks forward to this increase in her income with gladness and thankfulness of heart.

All CCT community clients, of which Celma is one, are organized into fellowship groups of fifteen to thirty members who meet on a weekly basis. There they share stories of their work, repay microfinance loans and draw strength and inspiration from their study of the Word of God.
