Marilou's story

Marilou is a hardworking mother from Taguig City, Philippines. She is 50 years old and is married to Danilo, who 54 years old and works as a mechanic. They have four children; two are working and two are in college.

That is why both she and her husband are working hard. She sells cooked boneless milk fish, which is good with rice. She also has a variety store and sells ready-to-wear items for additional income.

She would like to acquire a loan that will be used in buying ingredients for boneless milk fish as well as grocery items for her variety store.

She is glad to know that there are organizations willing to help her improve her business. She hopes to have their own house someday and dreams that all her children will finish college.

Marilou is a member of the Center for Community Transformation and meets weekly with her fellowship partners to share her life’s testimony and business experience with her fellowship members. She also draws strength and inspiration from the fellowship and listening to the Word of God.

A fellowship group is composed of 15 to 20 members. The fellowship groups gather each week to study the Word of God, build social relationship among partners, and pay microfinance loans.
