A loan of $250 helped to pay for groceries, toiletries and beverages needed in her business.

Estelita's story

This is Estelita. Her previous loan was a big help in her business. She was able to buy more grocery items for her variety store. The loan also helped in the education of her children as well as in their household expenditures. She and her husband are working hard to provide for their everyday needs.

She would like to apply for another 10,000 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 meet her family’s daily needs and her children’s education expenses. She looks forward to this financial increase with gladness and thankfulness in her heart.

Estelita's dream is to run her business very well, and she hopes that her family will always be in good health. She meets up weekly with her co-fellowship* members to share stories of her life and business and draw strength and inspiration from her religion.

* 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 who gather each week to study religion, build social capital, and repay microfinance loans.
