Raquel's story

Raquel previously accessed an 15,000 PHP loan, which she used to purchase merchandise and products needed in her business. Her earnings were a big help for her children’s education and in their personal, household and business expenditures. She would like to apply for another 15,000 PHP loan to buy more merchandise and products to increase her product inventory. The more items she has on display and available on hand, the better. More items to sell will result in better profits. Her profits from the business will definitely help her to sustain her children’s education and daily needs. She looks forward to this financial increase with gladness and thankfulness in her heart. Raquel hopes for her business to expand and dreams for her children to finish college. She meets up with her co-fellowship* members to share stories of her life and business every week, and it's where she can also draw strength and inspiration from the fellowship and 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 microfinance loans.
