A loan of $1,000 helped to pay for grocery items, toiletries and beverages needed in her business.


Lyra's story

This is Lyra. Her previous loan was a big help in her business. She was able to buy all the needed products for her grocery store thus generating bigger income. Over five years in the business, she has been able to get the loyalty of her neighborhood. She and her husband work hard to provide income for their everyday expenses.

She would like to apply for another 40,000 PHP loan for her to buy groceries, toiletries, beverages and other products to add in her inventory. The more items displayed at the store the better. More items to sell will result in better profit. Her profits from business will definitely help cover her family’s daily needs and her children’s education expense. She looks forward to this financial increase with gladness and thankfulness in her heart.


Lyra hopes that her business will grow bigger and she will have a bigger stall. She dreams that her children will finish their studies. She meets up with her co-fellowship members to share stories of her life and business every week and also 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.
