A loan of $450 helped to pay for grocery items, toiletries, and beverages needed in her business.


Shirley's story

This is Shirley. She previously accessed a 19,000 PHP loan that she used to purchase more quantities and varieties of grocery items and products needed in her business. Her earnings were a big help for her children’s education and in their personal, household, and business expenditures.

She would like to apply for another 19,000 PHP loan for her to buy groceries, toiletries, beverages, and other products to add to her inventory. The more items displayed at the store the better. More items to sell will result in a better profit. Her profits from the business will definitely help sustain her family’s daily needs and children’s education expenses. She looks forward to this financial increase with gladness and thankfulness in her heart.

Shirley hopes that her business will get stronger and dreams that her children will finish their studies. 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 fellowship and 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.
