A loan of $600 helped to pay for more stocks of mineral water to expand her product inventory.


Norma's story

This is Norma. She previously accessed a 16,000 PHP loan that she used to buy more scrap textiles that she will make into rugs. Her earnings were a big help for the education of her children and in their personal, household and business expenditures. She and her husband are working hard to provide income for their family. Aside from her rug-making business, she is also a mineral water dealer.

She would like to apply for another 24,000 PHP loan to buy more stocks of mineral water to expand her product inventory. Her profits from her business will definitely help her to cover their daily needs and the educational expenses of her children. She looks forward to this financial increase with gladness and thankfulness in her heart.

Norma hopes to be successful in her business ventures and dreams of giving her children a quality education and a good life. She faithfully attends the weekly fellowship* meeting that allows her to give of her own share of God’s love and care in her life.

* 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.
