Lanie's story

Lanie runs a sari-sari (general store) business to earn an income. Her previous loan was a big help in her business. She was able to buy more products for her variety store, an investment that gave her the opportunity for higher income. She has been engaged this business for five years now and it is continuously growing. She and her husband are working hard to provide income for the family's everyday expenses,

She would like to apply for another PhP 35,000 loan, which will allow her to buy groceries, toiletries, beverages, and other products to add to her inventory. She believes that the more items she can display at the store, the better. Having a greater variety of items to sell will result in better profits, which will be a great help in sustaining her family’s daily needs and supporting her children’s educational expenses. She looks forward to this financial increase with gladness and thankfulness in her heart.

Lanie's dreams are for her youngest child to finish his studies and for her business to be successful. She faithfully meets up with her co-fellowship* members to share stories of her work 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 who gather each week to study the Word of God, build social capital, and repay micro-finance loans.
