Criselda's story

This is Criselda. She previously accessed a 50,000 PHP loan to buy additional ready-to-wear products. Her earnings were a big help for the education of her children and in meeting her personal, household and business expenses.

She would like to apply for another 50,000 PHP loan to buy ready-to-wear products like ladies' wear, men's wear, kids' wear and other merchandise items to expand her product inventory. The more items displayed in the store the better. More items to sell will result in more profit. Her profits from her business will definitely help her to sustain her daily needs and pay the educational expenses of her children. She looks forward to this financial increase with gladness and thankfulness in her heart.

Criselda dreams to be successful 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 work every week and also draws 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.
