A loan of $675 helped to pay for grocery items, toiletries and beverages needed in her business.


Jocelyn's story

This is Jocelyn. She previously accessed a loan of 14,000 PHP that she used to purchase greater 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 her family's personal, household and business expenditures.

She would like to apply for another loan of 29,000 PHP 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 profit. Her profits from business will definitely help sustain her family’s daily needs and her children’s education expenses. She looks forward to this financial increase with gladness and thankfulness in her heart.

Jocelyn hopes that her variety store will someday become a grocery store. She dreams that her children will finish their studies. She meets up with her co-fellowship* members to share stories of her work every week and also to draw strength and inspiration from the Word of God, which 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.
