A loan of $900 helped to pay for grocery items and other products needed for her business.


Perla's story

Perla previously accessed an 35,000 PHP loan that she used to purchase more quantities and varieties of grocery items and products needed in her business. Her earnings were a big help for her child’s education, in their personal, household, and business expenditures. She would like to apply for another 40,000 PHP loan for her to buy groceries, toiletries, beverages, and other products to add in 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 child’s education expense. She looks forward to this financial increase with gladness and thankfulness in her heart. Perla dreams of having another variety store and hopes to give her child a good education. She meets up with her co-fellowship* members to share stories of her life and business every week and draws strength and inspiration from the 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, build social capital, and repay microfinance loans.
