A loan of $1,225 helped to pay for grocery items needed for her business.

Alma's story

This is Alma. She previously received a 50,000 PHP loan that she used to purchase grocery items needed for her business. Her earnings have helped with her children's education, personal household and business expenditures.

She would like to apply for another loan of 50,000 PHP to buy groceries, toiletries, beverages and other products to add to her inventory. She believes that having more items displayed for sale at the store will result in better profit. Her profits from the business will help support her family’s daily needs and her children’s education expense. She looks forward to this increase in profit with happiness and is thankful in her heart.

Alma hopes that her business will turn into a grocery someday. She wants to become a successful business woman and hopes that her children will be able to finish their studies and have a good life once they settle down. She is active in attending the weekly fellowship* because she finds that the sharing inspires her to be optimistic in her 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.
