A loan of $1,175 helped to pay for grocery items, toiletries and beverages needed in her business.


Alma's story

Alma has a variety store and she is thankful for the financial assistance extended to her. Her grocery store has been running for more than a decade and is continuously growing. Her loan also helped in sending her children to school. She also has a rental house and a loading station for additional income. She would like to apply for another 50,000 PHP loan for her 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 profits. Her profits from the business 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.

Alma hopes that her business will continue to flourish and dreams to have a good future with her family. She meets up with her co-fellowship* members every week to share stories of her life and business and to draw strength and inspiration from the fellowship and Word of God that 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, to build social capital, and to pay microfinance loans.
