A loan of $300 helped to pay for grocery items, toiletries and beverages needed in her business.


Donata's story

Donata borrowed a loan and used it in her business. She has a tailoring business where she makes rugs of different sizes and patterns. Aside from her tailoring business, she also has a variety store and sells frozen and processed foods. Her income from the loan is helpful in their everyday expenses at home. She and her husband, who works as a driver, are helping each other to provide for their family and manage their household.

She would like to apply for another 12,000 PHP loan 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 better profits. Her profits from the business will definitely help sustain her family’s daily needs and children’s education expense. She looks forward to this financial increase with gladness and thankfulness in her heart.

Donata dreams to be successful both in life and business. She hopes to give her family a good future. She meets up every week with her co-fellowship members* to share stories of her life and business and to also 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.
