Lucia's story

This is Lucia. Her previous loan was a big help in her business. She was able to buy the needed spare parts and accessories of her computers. The loan was also a big help for their family in terms of finances. She and her husband are working hard to provide income for their everyday needs. She is also a jeepney operator while her husband is the driver. They are more focused now on their jeepney operation but they still have their computer shop. She would like to apply for another 35,000 PHP loan to buy spare parts and pay for the maintenance of their jeepney unit. Her profits from her business will definitely help her to sustain their daily needs and pay the educational expenses of her children. She looks forward to this financial increase with gladness and thankfulness in her heart. Lucia hopes to be ale to have more jeepneys and dreams to have a better life. She meets up with her co-fellowship members to share stories of her work every week and where she can also 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 pay Micro Finance loans.
