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


Alicia's story

This is Alicia. Her previous loan was a big help for her business. She was able to buy all the grocery items needed in her variety store. She also has a bakery and food stall for additional income. She is working hard to provide income for her family.

She would like to apply for another 20,000 PHP loan to buy groceries, toiletries, beverages and other products to add to her inventory. The more items displayed at the store, the better. More items to sell will result in better profit. She will also use the money to buy ingredients for her bakery and food stall. Her profits from the business will definitely help sustain her family’s daily needs and her children’s educational expense. She looks forward to this financial increase with gladness and thankfulness in her heart.

Alicia dreams of giving her children a good life and a future. She hopes that her business will get bigger and stronger. She meets up with her co-fellowship* members to share stories of her work every week and to 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 micro-finance loans.
