A loan of $500 helped to pay for additional stocks of merchandise, like children's, men's and women's clothing needed in her business.

Virginia's story

This is Virginia. Her previous loan was a big help in her business. She was able to buy more clothes and shirts for children, men and women. She has been in this business for ten years now, and it keeps on growing. She and her husband, who is a technician, work hard to provide income for their everyday expenses.

She would like to apply for another loan, this time for 20,000 PHP, to buy more stock of clothes for children, men and women. The more items displayed at the store, the better. More items to sell will result in better profit. Her profits from business will definitely help her to sustain her daily needs and the educational expenses of her children. She looks forward to this financial increase with gladness and thankfulness in her heart.

Virginia dreams of expanding her business and having more stalls. She hopes to have good health and a good life for her family. She faithfully meets every week with her co-fellowship* members to share stories of her work and to also 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.
