A loan of $700 helped to pay for grocery items, toiletries, and beverages needed for her business.

Susan's story

Susan has faithfully paid back her previous loan which she used for her business. She has been operating her own “sari-sari” (variety) store for more than fifteen years and she earns well from this. Having a bigger family requires more effort to provide for their needs, especially for her three children. She had to work hard, with the determination of having better income, to provide her children with better education.

To improve sales, Susan would like to apply for a new loan to purchase additional grocery goods to sell. With PHP 30,000, she could purchase more quantities and varieties of grocery items, toiletries and beverages needed in her business. She sincerely lets you know her heartfelt thanks and appreciation for this assistance in advance.

In the future, Susan hopes that her children will be interested in putting up their own businesses too. She meets up with her co-fellowship* members every week to share stories of her life and to draw strength and inspiration from the fellowship and the Word of God which 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, to build social capital, and to repay microfinance loans.
