Erlinda's story

This is Erlinda. She previously took a 15,000 PHP loan, which she used to purchase merchandise items to resell in her business. Her earnings were a big help in her personal, household and business expenditures.

She would like to apply for another loan of 15,000 PHP. She will use this loan to buy additional supplies and merchandise to resell, like clothing, footwear, undergarments, and cosmetics. More items to sell will result in better profit for her. Her profits from business will definitely help her to meet her daily needs. She looks forward to this financial increase with happiness, and thankfulness in her heart.

Erlinda dreams of expanding her business and hopes that her grandchildren will have a good education. 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 fellowship and the Word of God.

* 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 pay microfinance loans.
