Marelin's story

Running a business is not easy, especially when you don't have enough capital. That is why Marelin is very thankful for the financial assistance extended to her. She was able to buy more grocery items that she displayed in her variety store. She earned higher income which she used in not only paying their household bills and educational expenses of their children but also for saving for their future. Aside from her variety store, she also has a piggery and poultry which earn additional income.

Once again, Marelin would like to take a loan that will be used to buy more toiletries, rice, soda, chips, canned goods, charcoal, and other grocery items. The loan will also be helpful in her piggery and poultry businesses. She hopes that her children will finish college and have a better future.

Marelin 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 repay microfinance loans.
