A loan of $200 helped to pay for grocery items, toiletries, and drinks for her business.

Vicenta's story

This is Vicenta. She previously took out a loan of PHP 8,000 to increase her stock of grocery items and products for her business. Her earnings were a big help for her children’s education and her personal, household, and business expenses. She also sells street food like fish balls and egg balls for additional income.

She would like to apply for another loan of PHP 8,000 to buy groceries, toiletries, drinks, and other products to add to her inventory. The more items displayed in the store, the better because more items to sell will result in higher profits. Her profits from business will help sustain her family’s daily needs and children’s education expense. She is looking forward to this financial increase with joy and gratitude in her heart.

Vicenta hopes that her business will continue to grow and dreams that her children will finish their studies. She meets up with her co-fellowship* members to share stories of her work every week and to 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. The fellowship groups gather each week to study the word of God, build social capital, and repay microfinance loans.
