A loan of $1,150 helped to pay for calamansi (Panama orange) scent, other ingredients, and bottles needed for her business.


Benilda's story

This is Benilda. Her previous loan was a big help in her business, as she was able to buy all the needed products. She has this business for seven years, and she also has an electronic loading (cell phone minutes) for additional income. Her income from the loan was a big help in her family's everyday expenses. She would like to apply for another 50,000 PHP loan to buy calamansi (Panama orange) scent, other ingredients, and bottles needed for her business. Her profits from her business will definitely help her to sustain their daily needs. She looks forward to this financial increase with gladness and thankfulness in her heart. Benilda dreams that her business will continue to flourish, and hopes to give a bright future to her family. She meets up with her co-fellowship members to share stories of her life and business every week, and to draw strength and inspiration 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 microfinance loans.
