A loan of $975 helped to pay for grocery items and products needed in her business.


Lyra's story

This is Lyra. She previously accessed a 50,000 PHP (Philippines pesos) loan that she used to purchase more quantities and varieties of grocery items and products needed in her business. Her earnings were a big help for her children’s education and in her personal, household and business expenditures.

She would like to apply for a new 40,000 PHP loan to buy 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 better profit. Her profits from business will definitely help to sustain 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.

Lyra wants to be able to send all her children to school and to have them be able to finish their studies. She wants to renovate her house and to help her husband provide a good life for their family. She is active in attending the weekly fellowship* meetings as it helps her to learn a lot from the Bible. The word of God strengthens her spiritual life.

* 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 pay microfinance loans.
