A loan of $700 helped to pay for grocery items, toiletries, and beverages needed for her business.


Juanita's story

Juanita is thankful for the financial assistance extended to her as she was able to buy more products for her variety store. Her loan was also helpful for the education of her child. For additional income, she also has an apartment for rent. She would like to apply for another 30,000 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 better profits. The profits from her business will definitely help sustain her family’s daily needs and her child’s educational expenses. She looks forward to this financial increase with gladness and thankfulness in her heart. Juanita hopes to have a grocery store someday and dreams of owning a vehicle. She meets up with her co-fellowship* members to share stories of her life and business every week so that 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.
