A loan of $1,175 helped to pay for grocery items, toiletries and beverages needed in her business.


Milagros's story

Milagros is thankful for the financial assistance previously extended to her, as she was able to buy more products for her variety store. The loan helped not just in her business but also in the education of her child, who is in college. Her income from her business assists the family with its everyday household expenditures. Her husband helps her generate income for their family. Milagros has been in this business for more than 10 years. She would like to apply for another loan, of 50,000 Phillipine pesos, to buy groceries, toiletries, beverages and other products to add to her inventory. The more items displayed at the store, the better. More items to sell will result in better profits. Her profits from the business will definitely help sustain her family’s daily needs and her child’s education expenses. She looks forward to this financial increase with gladness and thankfulness in her heart. Milagros hopes that her business will last longer and dreams of buying a vehicle. She meets up with her co-fellowship* members to share stories of her work every week. There, she can also draw strength and inspiration from studying the Word of God. *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.
