A loan of $1,000 helped to pay for the recyclable materials needed in her business.

Lilia's story

This is Lilia. She previously accessed an 40,000 PHP loan that she used to purchase the scrap materials needed in her business. Her earnings were a big help in their personal, household and business expenditures. She is a widow and she continues to work to provide an income for her daily needs and to be able to help her children.

She would like to apply for another 40,000 PHP loan. She will be incorporating the loan into her current revolving fund used to buy scrap and recyclable materials. Her profits from the business will definitely help her to sustain her daily needs. She looks forward to this financial increase with gladness and thankfulness in her heart.

Lilia dreams of having her own place for her junk shop and hopes to have good health always. She faithfully meets up with her co-fellowship members* to share stories of her life and business every week and 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 microfinance loans.
