A loan of $300 helped to buy products, such as different toys, to sell in her business.


Celia's story

This is Celia, 43, a resident of Silang, Cavite, Philippines. She is married to Nieto, who works abroad, and a mother to her children. She, together with her children, manages their own household while operating the business. She works hard to provide income for their everyday expenses and her children’s studies.

Celia's business consists of buying and selling assorted toys and similar products. Basically, she buys toy products from wholesalers, repackages them, and sells them at a small profit. Her customers are attracted to buy due to the low prices she charges and the many options she offers. Her regular customers are her neighbors in the local community. She earns a minimum of 300 Philippine Pesos (PHP) in sales every day.

To help continue operations of her business, she is requesting a PHP12,000 loan. She will be using the loan to buy more candies and toy products to expand her inventory. She expects a boost in her business income as she expands her business.

Celia hopes to grow her business soon and dreams to be able to give her family a good future through all her hard work in her business. She faithfully meets every week with her co-fellowship members to share stories of her work and to 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 pay microfinance loans.
