A loan of $475 helped to pay for grocery items, toiletries, and beverages.

Benita's story

Benita is thankful for the financial assistance extended to her, as she was able to buy more groceries for her variety store. Her loan helped to support her business as well as the education of her child, who is now in college. Her business income is assisting their everyday household expenditures. She and her husband, who works as a driver, work hard to provide for their everyday needs.

She would like to apply for another 20,000 PHP loan 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 the business will definitely help to sustain her family’s daily needs and her child’s educational expense. She looks forward to this financial increase with gladness and thankfulness in her heart.

Benita dreams that her business will continue to flourish and hopes that her family is always in good health. She meets up with her co-fellowship* members to share stories of her life and business every week. This is also where she draws 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 God, build social capital, and repay micro-finance loans.
