A loan of $475 helped to pay for grocery items, toiletries, and beverages needed in her business.


Teodora's story

This is Teodora. She previously accessed an 15,000 PHP loan that she used to purchase more quantities and varieties of grocery items, toiletries and beverages needed in her business. Her earnings were a big help in her personal, household and business expenditures.

She would like to apply for another 20,000 PHP loan for her to buy groceries, toiletries, beverages and other products to add in her current inventory. The more items displayed at the store, the better. More items to sell will result in better profit. Her profits from business will definitely help her to sustain her family's daily needs. She looks forward to this financial increase with gladness and thankfulness in her heart.

Teodora dreams that her business will last longer and hopes to have a good life. Every week, she meets up with her co-fellowship* members to share stories of her life and business and to draw strength and inspiration from the fellowship and the word of God she studies.

All Center for Community Transformation (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 microfinance loans.
