Maribel's story

56-year-old Maribel is a resident of San Pedro, Laguna, Philippines. She is married to Fredelito, 58, who works as a foreman. They have children and some of them are still studying. Both of them work hard to prepare for the future of their family.

Maribel has a variety store that she started 10 years ago. A variety store is a very common micro-business in the Philippines and will be seen in most of the households. She is glad to know that there are organizations willing to help her expand her business.

Maribel would like to ask for financial assistance that will be used to buy more toiletries, rice, soda, chips, canned goods, charcoal, and other grocery items. The loan will help in the expansion of her business and to have additional capital.
She hopes that her business will grow bigger and become a grocery store. She also dreams that her children will finish college.

Maribel 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 a social relationship among partners, and pay micro finance loans.
