A loan of $425 helped to buy grocery items and products to sell in her store.


Estelita's story

This is Estelita. She previously accessed a 14,000 PHP loan that she used to purchase a variety of groceries and products needed in her general store. Her earnings were a big help for her children’s education and for providing for her personal, household, and business expenditures. Estelita is requesting another 17,000 PHP loan to buy groceries, toiletries, beverages, and other products to add to her inventory. The more items displayed at her store the better, as this will result in better profit. Estelita's profits will definitely help to sustain her family’s daily needs and provide for her children’s education expenses. She looks forward to this financial increase with gladness and thankfulness in her heart. Estelita hopes to be able to expand her business and she dreams of giving her family a good future. She faithfully meets up weekly with her co-fellowship* members to share stories of her work and draw strength and inspiration from studying 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 who gather each week to study the Word of God, build social capital, and repay microfinance loans.
