A loan of $1,150 helped to pay for grocery items, toiletries, and beverages needed in her business.


Aida's story

This is Aida. She previously accessed a PHP 50,000 loan that she used to purchase more quantities and varieties of grocery items, toiletries, and beverages needed in her business. Her earnings were a big help in her personal, household, and business expenditures. For additional income, she also has a food stall.

Aida would like to apply for another PHP 50,000 loan to buy groceries, toiletries, beverages, and other products to add to her current inventory. The more items displayed at the store, the better. More items to sell should result in greater profit. Her profits from business will definitely help her to sustain her daily needs. She looks forward to this financial increase with gladness and thankfulness in her heart.

Aida hopes for a continuous business expansion and dreams to give her family a good life. Every week, she meets with her co-fellowship members* to share stories of her life and business and to draw strength and inspiration from the fellowship and from her studies of the Word of God.

*All Center for Community Transformation (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.
