A loan of $1,050 helped to pay for grocery items and products needed in her business.


Dwighta's story

Dwighta is thankful for the financial assistance extended to her, as she was able to buy more grocery items for her variety store. Her store has been running for eleven years now, and it keeps on expanding. Her income from the loan supported her everyday expenses. She continues to work to provide for her and to help her family. She also sells charcoal and mineral water for additional income.

She would like to apply for another loan, this time for 45,000 PHP, 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 profits from business will definitely help sustain her family’s daily needs and her children’s education expenses. She looks forward to this financial increase with gladness and thankfulness in her heart.

Dwighta dreams that her business will get bigger. She meets up every week with her co-fellowship* members to share stories of her work and also to draw strength and inspiration from the Word of God, which 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.
