A loan of $1,225 helped to buy groceries, toiletries and beverages to sell to her customers.

Erlinda's story

Erlinda previously received a loan for 25,000 PHP to buy items to sell to her customers. This loan was a big help in paying for her personal, household and business expenditures. Now she is requesting a new loan, for 50,000 PHP, to buy groceries, toiletries, beverages and other products to add to her current inventory. The more items she displays, the higher her profits will be. She will use the additional income she earns to support her family. Her goal for the future is to expand her business and open another store. She meets up with her co-fellowship* members to share stories of her work and draw strength and inspiration from her religion.

*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 who gather to study religion, build social capital, and repay loans.
