A loan of $300 helped to buy more groceries, toiletries and beverages to expand her product inventory.


Salvacion's story

Salvacion M., a 61-year-old resident of Commonwealth, Quezon City, Philippines, is mother to a young adult currently studying in high school. Salvacion operates a variety store. In the Philippines, a variety store is basically a small convenience store that retails groceries, toiletries and beverages piecemeal to the local neighborhood. It is the place to go for to buy one sachet of shampoo, a Php5-worth of cooking oil, or an egg. Her store is located adjacent to her house, and her regular customers are her neighbors and the local community. She earns a minimum of Php350 in sales every day.



To help her continue operations of her business, she is requesting a Php13,000 loan which she will use to buy more quantities of products such as groceries, toiletries and beverages to expand her product inventory. She expects a boost in her business income as she expands her business.



Salvacion dreams that her family will be complete again soon, and that her child will be able to study all the way through college. She faithfully meets up with her co-fellowship members to share stories of her work every week.



* 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 who gather each week to study the Word of God, build social capital, and pay Micro Finance loans.
