Ma. Corazon
Ma. Corazon L., 41, is making sure that her family has enough provisions for their daily needs. Married to Henry L., an employee, they are blessed with two children. She makes sure that she helps her husband earn so that their family can have a better life. She has been managing her own junk shop for quite some time now.

Corazon has been a regular member of Center for Community Transformation* (CCT) for more than a year now. She regularly attends their weekly fellowship meetings and pays her weekly dues consistently. Because of her good repayment performance with her previous loans, she was able to borrow 10 times in CCT’s cooperative. She is consistent in paying her dues because she used the money she borrowed to expand and improve her salon business.

Now with your help, she would like to apply for a 30,000 PHP loan. This amount will be used as a source of added capital for her expanding business, enabling her to purchase more junk supplies which in turn will be sold to bigger foundries and manufacturers. She dreams that her business will continue to grow so that she can provide for her children’s education, so that they can have degrees and have good stable jobs once they’re grown.

* 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 microfinance loans.
