A loan helped to pay for grocery items, toiletries, and beverages to expand her product inventory.


Nelia's story

This is Nelia. She previously accessed a 10,000 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 their personal, household, and business expenditures.

She would like to apply for another 15,000 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 for better profit. Her profits from business will definitely help sustain her family’s daily needs and children’s education expenses. She looks forward to this financial increase with gladness and thankfulness in her heart.

Nelia hopes that her business will continue to be successful and dreams that her children will finish their studies. She meets up with her co-fellowship* members to share stories of her life and business every week and from there she also draws strength and inspiration from the fellowship and the Word of God that 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.
