A loan of $700 helped to buy items to sell to her customers.

Arlene's story

Arlene is thankful for the prior financial assistance extended to her as she was able to buy more products to sell in her variety store. Her loan also helped her educate her children. The income from her business assisted in paying everyday household expenditures as well. Her husband, who is an electrician, is helping her produce income for their family.

She would like to apply for another 30,000 PHP loan to buy groceries, toiletries, beverages and other products to sell. The more items displayed at the store the better her profits and the greater her ability to sustain her family’s daily needs and pay her children’s education expenses. She looks forward to this loan with gladness and thankfulness in her heart.

Arlene hopes that her business will be stable and dreams of giving her children a good life and education. She meets up with her co-fellowship* members to share stories of her life and business every week, and draw strength and inspiration from her religion, 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 who gather to study religion, build social capital, and repay micro-finance loans.
