A loan of $325 helped to pay for grocery items, toiletries, and beverages needed in her business.


Ma. Berlinda's story

This is Ma. Berlinda. She previously accessed a 12,000 PHP loan that she used to purchase more quantities and varieties of grocery items and products needed in her business. Her earnings were a big help for her children’s education, and with her personal household and business expenditures. She would like to apply for another 14,000 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 profit. Her business profits will definitely help sustain her family’s daily needs and children’s education expenses. She looks forward to this financial increase with gladness and thankfulness in her heart. Ma. Berlinda hopes that her business will grow bigger and dreams to have her own house. She meets every week with her co-fellowship* members to share stories of her life and business and to also draw strength and inspiration from the fellowship and the Word of God that she studies. *All CCT community partners / clients are organized into fellowship groups 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.
