A loan of $475 helped to pay for more 'piaya' (unleavened bread) to sell.


Melinda's story

This is Melinda. She previously accessed an 8,000 PHP loan that she used to buy more 'piaya'. Her earnings were a big help for the education of her children and in their personal, household and business expenditures.

She would now like to apply for a 20,000 PHP loan to buy more' piaya', a flat unleavened bread filled with muscovado sugar. Her profits from the business will definitely help her to cover her family's daily needs. She looks forward to this financial increase with gladness and thankfulness in her heart.

Melinda hopes to have more customers and that her family won't get sick. She meets with her co-fellowship members to share stories of her life and business every week and draw strength and inspiration from her studies of the Word of God.

*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.
