Marieta
This is Marieta, 50, a resident of Manila, Philippines. She is married to Danilo, a vendor and she is a mother to their children. She, together with her husband, manages their household while operating the business. At this time, she is working hard to continually provide income for her everyday expenses.

Marieta operates a bridal gown rental business. She has sewers who she pays to make bridal gowns and then she displays them in her stall so people can see them for rent. She has been in this business for 15 years now. Her regular customers are people in the local community. She earns a minimum of 3,000 Philippine Pesos (PHP) in sales every week.

To help her continue operations of her business, she is requesting a PHP 20,000 loan. She will be using the loan to buy cloth, fabric, thread, and other materials needed in making a gown. She expects a boost in her business income as she expands her business.

Marieta dreams of expanding her business and having another branch. She hopes to give her children a good education and a good future. She faithfully meets up with her co-fellowship members to share stories of her life and business every week and draw strength and inspiration from the fellowship and 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 the Word of God, build social capital, and pay Micro Finance loans.

More information about this loan

On Friday November 8, 2013, Super Typhoon Haiyan made its way through Southeast Asia, causing substantial damage to homes and businesses in areas of the Philippines. Given the state of devastation following this storm, borrowers living and working in these areas may have difficulty making repayments on their loans, thus making their Kiva loans higher risk. More information >>
