A loan of $550 helped to pay for more quantities and varieties of accessory products to expand her inventory.


Maria's story

This is Maria. She previously accessed a 15,000 PHP loan that she used to buy more quantities and varieties of accessory products to expand her inventory. Her earnings were a big help for the education of her children and in their personal, household and business expenditures.

She would like to apply for another 23,000 PHP loan for her to buy more quantities and varieties of accessory products to expand her inventory. The more items displayed at the store the better. More items to sell will result in more profits. Her profits from the business will definitely help her to sustain her daily needs and educational expenses of her child. She looks forward to this financial increase with gladness and thankfulness in her heart.

Maria dreams to expand her business and have other sources of income. She meets up with her co-fellowship members weekly to share stories of her work and to 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 pay microfinance loans.
