A loan of $425 helped to pay for grocery items, toiletries and beverages needed in her business.


Leonora's story

This is Leonora. She previously accessed a 15,000 PHP loan that she used to purchase greater quantities and varieties of grocery items and products needed in her business. Her earnings were a big help for her children’s education, and in their other personal, household and business expenditures.

Leonora would like to apply for another loan of 17,000 PHP 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 greater profit. Her profits from the business will definitely help sustain her family’s daily needs and children’s education expenses. She looks forward to this financial increase with gladness and thankfulness in her heart.

Leonora dreams of expanding her business until it becomes a full grocery store and hopes that her two children will finish their studies. She meets up with her co-fellowship* members to share stories of her life and business every week. There she can also draw strength and inspiration from the Word of God as 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 microfinance loans.
