A loan of $500 helped to pay for grocery items and products needed in her business.


Mira's story

This is Mira. She previously accessed a 16,000 PHP loan that she used to purchase more quantities and varieties of grocery items and products needed in her general store (sari-sari store). Her earnings were a big help for her children’s education as well as her personal, household and business expenditures.

She would like to apply for another 20,000 PHP loan to buy groceries, toiletries, beverages and other products to add in her inventory. The more items displayed at the store the better. More items to sell will result in better profit. Her profit from the store will definitely help to sustain her family’s daily needs and children’s education expense. She looks forward to this financial increase with gladness and thankfulness in her heart.

Mira hopes her business will grow into a grocery store in the coming years and dreams of being able to give her children a good future and high quality education through all the hard work on her business. She faithfully meets up with her co-fellowship* members to share stories of her work every week and where she can also 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.
