A loan of $350 helped to pay for additional stock of decorative plastic flowers and plants needed in her business.

Elsa's story

This is Elsa. She previously accessed a 14,000 PHP loan that she used to buy additional stock of decorative plastic flowers and plants. Her earnings were a big help for the education of her children and in their personal, household and business expenditures.

She would like to apply for another 14,000 PHP loan for her to again buy additional stock of decorative plastic flower and plants. More items to sell will result in better profit. Her profits from business will definitely help her 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.

Elsa hopes to expand soon. She dreams of being able to give her family a good future through all her hard work on her business. She also dreams of having her own house and lot someday. She faithfully meets up with her co-fellowship* members to share stories of her work every week. At these meetings, she can also draw strength and inspiration from studying the Word of God.

* All CCT community partners and 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 pay back microfinance loans.
