A loan of $750 helped to pay for additional stocks of supplies and generator parts needed in her business.


Lydia's story

This is Lydia. Her previous loan was a big help in her business. She was able to buy all the needed things for the generator and its maintenance. She has been in this business for eight years now. She and her husband, who is a mechanic, work hard to provide for their family.

She would like to apply for another PHP 30,000 loan to buy additional stocks of supplies and generator parts needed in her business. Her profits from her business will definitely help her to sustain their daily needs and the educational expenses of her children. She looks forward to this financial increase with gladness and thankfulness in her heart.

Lydia dreams to give her children a good life and a future. She hopes that her business will continue to grow. Every week, she meets up with her co-fellowship* members to share stories of her work and to draw strength and inspiration from the Word of God she studies.

* All Center for Community Transformation (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 pay microfinance loans.
