A loan of $625 helped to pay for grocery items and products needed in her business.


Carmelita's story

This is Carmelita. Her previous loan was a big help to her business. She was able to buy more products for her business and she was able to generate more income. The loan helped not just her business but also with their family expenses. She has had this business for four years now. She and her husband, who is a driver, work hard to provide income for their everyday needs. She would like to apply for another 25,000 PHP loan to buy groceries, toiletries, beverages and other products to add into her current inventory. The more items displayed in the store the better. More items to sell will result in a better profit. Her profits from the business will definitely help her to sustain her daily needs. She looks forward to this financial increase with gladness and thankfulness in her heart. Carmelita dreams that her other members of the family will have businesses also. She hopes that her business will continue to grow. She meets up with her co-fellowship* members to share stories of her life and business every week 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 repay microfinance loans.
