A loan of $1,000 helped to buy groceries, toiletries, beverages, and other products needed in her business.

Celia's story

This is Celia. Her previous loan was a big help in her business and she was able to buy all the products she needed for her variety store. Her loan was also a big help in the education of her children and for providing for her family's everyday expenses. Celia's variety store has been running for three years now and continues to grow. Along with her husband, a businessman, she works hard to provide income for her family's everyday expenses.

Celia is requesting another 40,000 PHP loan to buy groceries, toiletries, beverages, and other products to add to her inventory. The more items displayed at the store the better as a greater variety will result in better profit. Celia will continue to use her business profits to help sustain her family’s daily needs and provide for her children’s education. She looks forward to this financial increase with gladness and thankfulness in her heart.

In the future, Celia dreams of expanding her business as well as her husband's business. She hopes that her children will have a good life and education. Celia faithfully meets with her co-fellowship* members to share stories of her work every week and draw strength and inspiration from studying the Word of God.

* 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 who gather weekly to study the Word of God, build social capital, and repay microfinance loans.
