A loan of $375 helped to buy grocery items and products for her store.


Novie's story

This is Novie. She previously accessed an 12,000 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, household and business expenditures.

She would like to apply for another 15,000 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 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.

Novie hopes to be able to expand soon, just as she dreams of being able to give her family a good future through all her hard work on her business. She faithfully meets with her co-fellowship* members every week to share stories of her work and to draw strength and inspiration from her studies of the Word of God.

* 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 microfinance loans.
