A loan of $500 helped to buy office and school supplies for sale.


William's story

This is William, 56, resident of Silang, Cavite, Philippines. He is married to Anabelle, a housewife and mother to their children. William works hard to provide a reliable income for their everyday expenses.

William and Anabelle operate a school supplies business adjacent to their home. There, one can buy items like pens, bond paper, and cartolina without having to go to a bookstore. William gets the supplies at wholesale prices and sells them by the piece. His regular customers are his neighbors and the local community. He earns a minimum of 300 PHP in sales every day.

To help him continue operations of his business, William is requesting a 20,000 PHP loan. He will use the loan to purchase school supplies and expand his product inventory. He expects a boost in income as he expands his business.

William dreams of giving his family a good life through all his hard work on his business. Every week, he faithfully meets up with his co-fellowship* members to share stories of his 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. The fellowship groups gather each week to study the Word of God, build social capital, and repay Micro Finance loans.
