Melanie's story

This is Melanie. She previously accessed a loan of 30,000 PHP that she used to purchase quantities and varieties of frozen foods needed for her business. Her earnings were a big help towards the education of her children and for their personal, household and business expenditures.

She would like to apply for another loan of 50,000 PHP to buy additional stocks of frozen foods needed for her business. The more items displayed at the store the better, because more items will result in better profits. Her profits from the business will definitely help her to sustain her daily needs and pay the educational expenses of her children. She looks forward to this financial increase with gladness and thankfulness in her heart.

Melanie hopes to be able to expand soon, as she dreams of being able to give her children a good, high quality education through all her hard work. She faithfully meets up with her co-fellowship* members weekly to share stories of her work and to 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 microfinance loans.
