A loan of $500 helped to pay for grocery items and products needed in her business.


Vilma's story

This is Vilma. She previously accessed a 15,000 PHP loan that she used to purchase more quantities and varieties of grocery items and products needed in her business. Her earnings were a big help for her children’s education, in their personal, household and business expenditures.

She would like to apply for another loan of 20,000 PHP to buy groceries, toiletries, beverages and other products to add to her inventory. The more items displayed at the store the better. More items to sell will result in a better profit. Her profits from business will definitely help sustain her family’s daily needs and her children’s education expense. She looks forward to this financial increase with gladness and thankfulness in her heart.

Vilma hopes that her children will finish their studies and dreams 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, where she can also draw strength and inspiration from 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. The fellowship groups gather each week to study the Word of God, build social capital, and repay Micro Finance loans.
