A loan of $500 helped to pay for additional supplies and merchandise products like clothing, footwear, undergarments and cosmetics needed in her business.


Raquel's story

This is Raquel. She previously accessed a 15,000 PHP loan that she used to purchase merchandise items and products needed in her business. Her earnings were a big help for her children’s education and in their personal, household and business expenditures.

She would like to apply for another loan, this time for 20,000 PHP, to buy additional supplies and merchandise products like clothing, footwear, undergarments and cosmetics needed in her business. The more items she has on display and available on hand, the better. More items to sell will result in better profit. Her profits from the business will definitely help her to sustain her children’s education and daily needs. She looks forward to this financial increase with gladness and thankfulness in her heart.

Raquel dreams that all her children will finish their studies. She faithfully meets with her co-fellowship members* every week 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 to study the Word of God, build social capital, and pay microfinance loans.
