A loan of $375 helped to pay for different products like slippers, undergarments, umbrellas, and blankets needed in her business.


Ofelia's story

This is Ofelia. She previously accessed an 14,000 PHP loan that she used buy more quantities of raw materials like fabric, thread, and other items needed in her business. Her earnings were a big help for the education of her child and in their personal, household, and business expenditures. She is now into a buy and sell business and she has stopped her tailoring business for a while.

She would like to apply for another 16,000 PHP loan to buy more different products like slippers, undergarments, umbrellas, and blankets 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 the educational expenses of her child. She looks forward to this financial increase with gladness and thankfulness in her heart.

Ofelia hopes that her business will continue to flourish, and dreams that her child will finish his studies. She meets up with her co-fellowship* members to share stories of her life and business every week and draws strength and inspiration from the fellowship and from 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 pay micro finance loans.
