Lucia's story

This is Lucia. She previously obtained a 12,000 PHP loan that she used buy larger quantities of products like meats, rice, vegetables, condiments and seasonings. Her earnings were a big help for the education of her children and in their personal, household and business expenditures.

She would like to apply for another loan, of 15,000 PHP, for her to purchase raw ingredients and supplies needed in her business. Her profits from business will definitely help her to sustain her daily needs and cover the educational expenses of her children. She looks forward to this financial increase with gladness and thankfulness in her heart.

Lucia dreams that her business will continue to be successful and hopes that her children will finish their studies. She meets up with her co-fellowship members* every week, to share stories of her life and business and to 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.
