A loan of $975 helped to pay for grocery items, toiletries and beverages to expand her product inventory.


Zarah's story

This is Zarah. She previously accessed a loan of 40,000 PHP 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, and in their personal, household and business expenditures. She would like to apply for another loan of 40,000 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 better profit. Her profits from the business will definitely help sustain her family’s daily needs and children’s education expenses. She looks forward to this financial increase with gladness and thankfulness in her heart. Zarah dreams for a continuous growth in her business and hopes that her children will finish their studies. She meets up with her co-fellowship* members to share stories of her life and business every week and she can also draw strength and inspiration from the Word of God she studies there. * 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.
