Marilou's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to purchase grocery items, toiletries, and beverages needed to sell in her general store business.

Marilou's story

Marilou is grateful that she was previously granted a 55,000 PHP loan which she used to purchase various grocery items and products needed to sell in her general store. She is glad that through her earnings she is able to send her children to school and meet their daily living expense. Marilou would now like to apply for a 60,000 PHP loan which she will use as working capital to purchase large quantities of grocery items such as rice, pasta, beverages, rice noodles, and other groceries which she retails in her store. She expects a higher demand of groceries this holiday season. Her income from her store is a stable source which covers both her family's basic needs and the education costs of her children. She thanks God and you in advance for the financial help that will be given her. She wishes everyone a blessed Christmas! Marilou dreams expanding her mini-general store into a big grocery store someday. She aims to give her children the best education so they can have better opportunities to improve their quality of life. Every week, she meets up with her co-fellowship* members to share stories of her work and to draw strength and inspiration from the word of God which she studies . *All Center for Community Transformation (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 repay Micro Finance loans.
