A loan of $750 helped to pay for grocery items and other products needed in her business.


Perla's story

This is Perla. Her previous loan was a big help in her business. She was able to buy all the needed products for her variety store. The loan also helped in their household expenditures and in the education of her child. She has been in this business for five years now. She is working hard to provide for their everyday expenses.

She would like to apply for another 30,000 PHP loan for her to buy groceries, toiletries, beverages and other products to add in her inventory. The more items displayed at the store the better. More items to sell will result in better profit. Her profits from business will definitely help sustain her family’s daily needs and child’s education expense. She looks forward to this financial increase with gladness and thankfulness in her heart.

Perla's dream is for her business to continuously grow, and she hopes to have their own house. 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 microfinance loans.
