A loan of $500 helped to purchase raw materials like fabric, thread, and other items needed in her tailoring business.

Lerma's story

This is Lerma. Her previous loan was a big help in her dressmaking business. She was able to make more dresses as she expanded her business through the loan. It also helped a lot in her family's everyday expenses. She and her husband are working hard to continually provide income for their family.

She would like to apply for another 20,000 PHP loan for her to buy additional supplies of raw materials like fabric, thread, and other items needed in her dress making business. Her profits from business will definitely help her to cover their daily needs. She looks forward to this financial increase with gladness and thankfulness in her heart.

Lerma dreams of having a big stall for her business and hopes to help her family. 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 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 micro-finance loans.
