A loan of $750 helped to pay for more tanks of LPG to expand her product inventory.


Telma's story

This is Telma. Her previous loan was a big help in her business. She was able to buy more tanks of LPG, thus generating more income. The income from the loan also helped in her household expenditures, as well as in the education of her children. She and her husband are working hard, to provide for their family's everyday needs.

She would like to apply for another loan, in the amount of 30,000 PHP. She will use the loan to buy more tanks of LPG. Her profits from business will definitely help her to meet her family's daily needs and to pay the educational expenses of her children. She looks forward to this financial increase with gladness and thankfulness in her heart.

Telma dreams of having her own sales stall, and hopes that her children will finish their studies. She meets with her co-fellowship members* every week, to share stories of her life and business and to draw strength and inspiration from the Word of God that 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 microfinance loans.
