Hilda's story

This is Hilda. Her previous loan was a big help not just in her business but also in her children's education and their household expenditures. She has been in this business for twenty years and she keeps on working to provide a good future for her family. She would like to apply for another 35,000 PHP loan to buy dried fish she needs in her business. The more dried fish displayed on her stall the better. More items to sell will result in a better profit. Her profits from business will definitely help her to sustain her daily needs and the educational expenses of her children. She looks forward to this financial increase with gladness and thankfulness in her heart. Hilda hopes to continuously be successful in her business and dreams to give her children a good life and education. She meets up with her co-fellowship members weekly 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 comprises 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.
