A loan of $500 helped to pay for additional stock of garlic and onions needed in her business.

Almira's story

This is Almira. Her previous loan was a big help to her business. She was able to start new businesses like selling electronic load, dried fish and other retail products. She and her husband are continuously working hard to provide income for their everyday expenses.

She would like to apply for another loan of 20,000 PHP to buy more onions and garlic. She will also use the loan to buy dried fish, assorted candies and electronic load supply for her new business. Her profits from her business will definitely help her to sustain her family's daily needs and the educational expenses of her children. She looks forward to this financial increase with gladness and thankfulness in her heart.

Almira hopes to give her children a good and quality education. She dreams that her business will grow even more. She faithfully meets up with her co-fellowship* members to share stories of her work every week and to draw strength and inspiration from the Word of God, which 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 repay microfinance loans.
