A loan of $1,225 helped to pay for calamansi (Panama orange) scent, other ingredients, and bottles needed for her business.


Benilda's story

This is Benilda. She previously received a 50,000 PHP loan that she used to buy ingredients and bottles for her business. Her earnings were a big help in her personal, household, and business expenditures.

She would like to apply for another 50,000 PHP loan for her to buy calamansi (Panama orange) scent, other ingredients, and bottles needed for her business. Her profits from business will definitely help her to sustain her family’s daily needs. She looks forward to this financial increase with gladness and thankfulness in her heart.

Benilda hopes to expand her business. 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 pay microfinance loans.
