A loan of $750 helped to buy groceries, toiletries, beverages, and other products to add to her inventory.

Arlene's story

This is Arlene. Her previous loan was a big help in her business. She was able to buy more products for her variety store, thus generating more income. The loan also helped with her children's education and in her family's household expenses. Arlene has had this business for 12 years now. She and her husband are working hard to provide income for their everyday expenses.

Arlene would like to apply for another 30,000 PHP loan 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 the business will definitely help sustain her family’s daily needs and her children’s education expenses. She looks forward to this financial increase with gladness and thankfulness in her heart.

Arlene dreams that her children will finish their studies, and she hopes for continuous growth in her business. She meets up with her co-fellowship* members to share stories of her life and business every week, and it is where she can also 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.
