A loan of $250 helped to buy more inventory for her clothing, direct sales, and frozen products businesses, particularly including shirts and blouses.

Edna's story

This is Edna. Her previous loan was a big help, in her business of selling vegetables and fruits. She has other businesses, like direct selling, frozen products, and a RTW (ready-to-wear clothing) business. Edna is a widow, and she works hard to provide income to support herself and her children every day.

She would like to apply for another 10,000 PHP loan, in order to buy more RTW products, like shirts and blouses. She will also use part of the loan in her frozen products and direct selling businesses. Her profits from the businesses will definitely help her to meet her own, and her family's daily needs. She looks forward to this financial increase with gladness and thankfulness in her heart.

Edna hopes to expand her businesses and dreams of having a good life. 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 each week to study the Word of God, build social capital, and pay Micro Finance loans.
