A loan of $250 helped to buy more groceries, toiletries, beverages and other products to add to her inventory.


Novie's story

This is Novie. She previously accessed a 12,000 PHP loan, which she used to purchase a greater quantity and variety of grocery items needed for her business. Her earnings were a big help for her children’s education, and in meeting the family’s personal, household and business expenses.

Novie would like to apply for another 10,000 PHP loan in order to buy more 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 higher profits. The income from this business will definitely help to meet her family’s daily needs and her children’s education expenses. 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 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 micro finance loans.
