A loan of $250 helped to pay for greater quantities and varieties of products like biscuits and different kinds of sweets to expand her product inventory.


Cristeta's story

This is Cristeta. She previously accessed a 40,000 PHP loan that she used to purchase greater quantities and varieties of products like biscuits and different sweets. Her earnings were a big help for her child’s education, and for their personal, household and business expenditures. She also has a variety store for additional income.

Cristeta would like to apply for a new loan of 10,000 PHP in order to buy additional quantities and varieties of biscuits and sweets. She will also use the money to buy grocery items. Her profits from business will definitely help sustain her family’s daily needs and child’s education expenses. She looks forward to this financial increase with gladness and thankfulness in her heart.

Cristeta hopes that her child will finish his studies and dreams that her business will continue to be successful. 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 pay microfinance loans.
