A loan of $275 helped to pay for grocery items, toiletries and beverages needed in her business.

Cristeta's story

This is Cristeta. Her previous loan was a big help in her business. She was able to buy more biscuits and sweet products and her business is continuously expanding. She is using her income to send her child to school as well as in their household expenditures. Aside from her biscuits and sweets, she also has a variety store. She is working hard to provide for their everyday needs.

She would like to apply for another 12,000 Philippine pesos (PHP) loan for her to buy grocery items, toiletries and beverages needed in her business. 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 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.

Cristeta hopes that her sales will continue to increase and dreams that her family will always be in good health. 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 Word of God as 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.
