A loan of $625 helped to buy fresh and salt water fish to sell.


Edelyn's story

This is Edelyn. She works selling fish and previously accessed a 20,000 PHP loan that she used to purchase quantities of fresh and salt water fish to expand her product inventory. Her earnings were a big help for the education of her children and to provide for her family's personal, household, and business expenditures.

Edelyn is requesting a 25,000 PHP loan to buy additional fresh and salt water fish that she needs in her business. The more fish displayed at her stall the better, as she knows that more items to sell will result in better profit. Edelyn's business profits will definitely help her to sustain her daily needs and provide for the educational expenses of her children. She looks forward to this financial increase with gladness and thankfulness in her heart.

In the future, Edelyn hopes that her business will continue to grow and she dreams that her children will finish their studies. She meets weekly with her co-fellowship* members to share stories of her life and business and draw strength and inspiration from studying the Word of God.

* 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 who gather to study the Word of God, build social capital, and pay microfinance loans.
