Leticia's story

This is Leticia, 58, a resident of Batasan, Quezon City, Philippines. She is married and earns a living by operating a variety store where she sells inexpensive items, often with a single price for all items in the store. It is where people go to buy one package of shampoo, PHP 5-worth of cooking oil, or an egg. She gets her supplies at wholesale prices and sells retail. Her regular customers are her neighbors and people in the local community, and she earns a minimum of PHP 500 in sales every day. She is requesting a loan for PHP 9,000 to help her continue operating her business. She will use this loan to buy more items to sell. She dreams of expanding her business to give her family a good future. She meets up with her co-fellowship* members to share stories of her life and business every week and draw strength and inspiration from the fellowship and her religion.

All CCT community partners / clients are organized into fellowship groups that meet on a weekly basis. A group is composed of 15 to 30 community partners who gather each week to study religion, build social capital, and repay microfinance loans.
