A loan of $500 helped to buy grocery items, toiletries and beverages needed in her business.

Mercedita's story

This is Mercedita. Her previous loan was a big help to her business. She was able to buy all the needed items needed in her variety store. She also has a direct selling business for additional income. She and her husband are working hard to provide income for their everyday needs.

She would like to apply for another 20,000 PHP loan to buy groceries, toiletries, beverages and other products to add in her current inventory. The more items displayed at the store the better. More items to sell will result in a better profit. The profits from her business will definitely help her to sustain her daily needs. She looks forward to this financial increase with gladness and thankfulness in her heart.

Mercedita dreams to have other businesses and hopes to give her family a good future. Mercedita meets up weekly with her co-fellowship* members to share stories of her work 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 each week to study the Word of God, build social capital, and repay microfinance loans.
