A loan of $550 helped to pay for grocery items, toiletries, and beverages needed in his business.


Samson's story

Samson has been operating his own “sari-sari” (variety) store for fifteen years and he earns well from this. Having a big family requires more effort to provide for their needs, especially for his three children. Samson and his wife had to work hard, with determination to have a better income, to provide their children with better education. To improve sales, Samson would like to apply for a new loan to purchase additional grocery goods to sell. At an amount of PHP 24,000, he could already purchase more quantities and varieties of grocery items, toiletries, and beverages needed in his business. He sincerely lets you know his heartfelt thanks and appreciation for this assistance in advance. In the future, Samson wants to open branches for his variety store. He also hopes to see improvement in his life, in his wife's, and in his children's. He meets up every week with his co-fellowship members to share stories of his life and business and to draw strength and inspiration from the fellowship and the Word of God, which he studies. All Center for Community Transformation (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.
