A loan of $725 helped to pay for grocery items and products needed in her business.


Estella's story

This is Estella. She previously accessed an 11,000 PHP loan that she used to buy groceries, toiletries and beverages to expand her product inventory. She expects a boost in her income as she expands her business. Her earnings were a big help for the education of her child and in their personal, house hold and business expenditures.

She would like to apply for another 30,000 PHP loan to buy groceries, toiletries, beverages and other products to add to her inventory. The more items displayed at the store 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 child. She looks forward to this financial increase with gladness and thankfulness in her heart.

Estella hopes to be able to expand soon, just as she fervently hopes that her children will be able to finish their studies and graduate one day. She faithfully 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 repay Micro Finance loans.
