Gemma's story

Gemma works hard to help provide for her family, especially for the needs of her children. For the past 14 years, she has run her own “sari-sari,” or variety store, and has made a good living doing so. Gemma has taken out and successfully repaid previous loans for her business through CCT. To improve sales, she is applying for a 20,000 PHP loan to buy additional quantities and varieties of grocery items, toiletries and beverages to sell. Gemma hopes to improve her business and manage her own manpower so she could better provide for the educational needs of her children. She sincerely wishes to give you heartfelt thanks and appreciation for any assistance in advance. All CCT community clients, including Gemma, are organized into fellowship groups of 15 to 30 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.
