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

A loan helped to pay for grocery items to sell and bananas, beans, gelatin, sweet potatoes, milk and other ingredients to make and sell "halo-halo" as well.

Myrna's story

Myrna is thankful that she was granted a 12,000 PHP loan to pay for grocery items and direct selling personal products. Her earnings helped a lot in sending her children to school and meeting their daily needs. This time she has added "halo-halo" snacks at her store.

She would now like to apply for an 18,000 PHP loan which she will use to buy more quantities of grocery items like rice, coffee, soda, rice noodles and canned goods which she sells at retail. Part of the loan she will use to buy beans, gelatin, sweet potatoes, milk and other ingredients to make and sell "halo-halo," which is a traditional Filipino treat consisting of a blend of fruits, sweet preserves, evaporated milk, and shaved ice. The name literally means "Mix-Mix". Her regular customers are her neighbors and the local community. She earns a minimum net income of PHP 700 a day. She thanks God and you in advance for the financial help that will be given her, for it will surely help cover their daily sustenance and her children's education.

Myrna hopes to maintain and grow her business so she could continue to send her three children to school. She prays to lead a happy and victorious life. She faithfully meets up with her co-fellowship* members to share stories of her work every week and where she can also draw strength and inspiration 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 repay microfinance loans.
