A loan of $350 helped to pay for fabric, cloth, thread, needles, and other materials needed in her tailoring.


Cristy's story

Cristy is thankful for the financial assistance extended to her, as she was able to buy the raw materials needed in her tailoring business. Her loan was also helpful in the education of her children. Her income from business assisted in their everyday household expenditures. Her husband is a carpenter and is helping her in providing for their family. She also has a direct-selling business and sells mineral water for additional income. She would like to apply for another PHP 15,000 loan to buy additional supplies of raw materials like fabric, cloth, thread, needles, and other materials needed in her tailoring. Her profits from business will definitely help her to sustain her daily needs and her children’s education. She looks forward to this financial increase with gladness and thankfulness in her heart.

Cristy dreams that all her businesses will last longer, and she hopes to give her family a good future. She meets up with her co-fellowship* members weekly to share stories of their work and to draw strength and inspiration from 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 repay their microfinance loans.
