A loan of $600 helped to pay for the repair and maintenance of her rooms for rent.


Margarita's story

Margarita is a resident of Malibay, Pasay City, Philippines. She is 53 years old, married, and has children who are all grown ups. Since 2008, she has rooms for rent which today has grown to nine rooms. Aside from this, she also has a variety store where she sells different grocery items per piece and per sachet. She is glad to know that there are organizations willing to help improve her business.

To have additional capital, she would like to ask for financial assistance that will be used for the repair and maintenance of her rooms for rent. Part of the loan will go to her variety store in buying different grocery items. She hopes that her family will always be in good health.

Margarita 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.


This loan is special because:

It's part of the partner's mission to empower communities through financial services and spiritual direction.
