A loan of $375 helped to purchase additional stock of school supplies and products needed in her business.

Vilma's story

This is Vilma. Her previous loan was a big help in her business. She was able to buy all the needed school supplies and products needed in her store, and she was able to support her family as well. She and her husband are working hard to provide income for their everyday needs. She also sells cellphone accessories for additional income.

She would like to apply for a new 15,000 PHP (Philippines pesos) loan to buy more stock of school supplies. She will also use the money for buying cellphone accessories. 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 her to sustain her daily needs and the educational expenses of her child. She looks forward to this financial increase with gladness and thankfulness in her heart.

Vilma dreams to have a stall inside the mall and hopes to give her child a good life and a future. She meets up with her co-fellowship* members to share stories of her life and business every week 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 microfinance loans.
