A loan of $350 helped to pay for grocery items and products needed in her business.

Rufina's story

This is Rufina. Her previous loan was a big help in her business as she was able to buy more products for her variety store. It also helped in the education of her children. Her business has been running for 13 years now, and it continues to grow. Her income from business is being used in her everyday expenses at home. She and her husband, who is an electrician, are helping each other to provide for their everyday needs.

She would like to apply for a new 15,000 PHP (Philippines pesos) loan for her 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 will result in better profit. Her profits from business will definitely help her to sustain her daily needs and her children's education. She looks forward to this financial increase with gladness and thankfulness in her heart.

Rufina hopes that her business will continue to flourish and dreams that her children will finish their studies. She meets up with her co-fellowship* members weekly to share stories of her work 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 repay microfinance loans.
