A loan of $1,000 helped to pay for additional vegetables and cooking products to sell at her stall.

Erlinda's story

This is Erlinda. Her previous loan was a big help in her business. She was able to buy all the products needed for her store. She has been in this business for six years, and it continues to grow. She and her husband work hard to provide income for their everyday needs.

She would like to apply for another 40,000 PHP loan to purchase additional vegetables and different cooking products and supplies for her business. Her profits from the business will definitely help her sustain her daily needs, and the educational expenses of her children. She looks forward to this financial increase with gladness and thankfulness in her heart.

Erlinda hopes to expand her business and have an additional stall. She dreams of giving her children a good and quality education. Every week, she meets up with her co-fellowship* members to share stories of her life and business, and 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 pay microfinance loans.
