A loan of $350 helped to pay for grocery items, toiletries and beverages for her business.


Petra's story

This is Petra. Her previous loan was a big help in her business. She was able to buy more grocery items for her variety store, thus generating more income. The loan also helped in the education of her children and in their household expenditures. This has been her business for four years now. She and her husband are working hard to provide income for their everyday expenses.

She would like to apply for another 14,000 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 better profit. Her profits from the business will definitely help sustain her family’s daily needs and the children’s education expenses. She looks forward to this financial increase with gladness and thankfulness in her heart.

Petra dreams that her business will continue to be successful 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 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.
