A loan of $225 helped to pay for grocery items, toiletries and beverages needed in her business.


Elisa's story

This is Elisa. She previously accessed a 9,000 PHP loan that she used to purchase more quantities and varieties of grocery items and products needed in her business. Her earnings were a big help for her children’s education and in the family's personal, household and business expenditures.

Elisa would like to apply for another 9,000 PHP loan to buy groceries, toiletries, beverages and other products to add to 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 children’s education expense. She looks forward to this financial increase with gladness and thankfulness in her heart.

Elisa hopes to have other sources of income, and she dreams of giving her children a good life and education. She meets up with her co-fellowship* members to share stories of her life and business every week. There she can also draw strength and inspiration from the fellowship and 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.
