A loan of $350 helped to pay for fish, meat and vegetables for her business.


Lilia's story

Lilia previously accessed a 25,000 PHP loan that she used to purchase more quantities of fish, meat and vegetables for her business. Her earnings were a big help for the education of her children and in their personal household and business expenditures.

She would like to apply for another 15,000 PHP loan for her to pay for more fish, meat and vegetables for her business. More items to sell will result in better profit. Her profits from the business will definitely help her to sustain her daily needs and the educational expenses of her children. She looks forward to this financial increase with gladness and thankfulness in her heart.

Lilia dreams of being more successful in her business and hopes to have a better living. She meets up with her co-fellowship members to share stories of her work every week and where she can also draw strength and inspiration from 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 micro-finance loans.
