A loan of $1,000 helped to pay for fertilizer and garden inputs for her business.

Matea's story

This is Matea. She previously accessed a 30,000 PHP loan that she used to buy gardening materials and supplies needed in her business. Her earnings were a big help in their personal, household and business expenditures.

She would like to apply for another loan, this time for 40,000 PHP. She will use the loan to buy gardening materials like wire and baskets, and supplies such as seed and fertilizer needed in her business. Her profits from his business will definitely help her sustain their daily needs. She looks forward to this financial increase with gladness and thankfulness in her heart.

Matea hopes for the continuous success of her business and dreams of having a peaceful life. She meets up every week with her *co-fellowship members to share stories of her life and business. She also draws 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 pay microfinance loans.
