Eleven microfinance practitioners and volunteers from Sri Lanka, Uganda, South Africa, and the United States were in the Philippines in April to attend a training program jointly sponsored and organized by CCT and Peer Servants, a US-based Christian organization. The trainees attended lectures on Growing and Multiplying Healthy Branches and learned effective microfinance practices firsthand when they went into the communities to observe how community relationship builders work and to interview recipients of microfinance services.
“By God’s grace we have been entrusted with the stewardship of sharing our learning and microfinance experience with younger microfinance institutions,” says Beth Venegas, Peer Servant - General Management of the CCT Training and Development Institute which facilitated the week-long program.
CCT established partnership with Peer Servants in 2008. Ruth Callanta, CCT president and founder, says, "Praise the Lord for this opportunity to be of service to brothers and sisters in the Lord who share our vision for economic and spiritual transformation of the poor."
