A loan of $500 helped to pay for grocery items and products needed in her business.


Marilyn's story

This is Marilyn. She previously accessed an 8,000 PHP loan that she used to buy groceries, toiletries and beverages to expand her product inventory. She expects a boost in her income as she expands her business. Her earnings are a big help for their personal, household and business expenditures.

She would like to apply for another 20,000 PHP loan for her to buy groceries, toiletries, beverages and other products to add to her inventory. The more items displayed at the store the better. More items to sell will result for better profit. Her profits from business will definitely help her to cover her daily needs and the educational expenses of her child. She looks forward to this financial increase with gladness and thankfulness in her heart.

Marilyn hopes her business will expand and grow into a mini-grocery through all her hard work on her business. She also hopes to give her child a good and high-quality education. She faithfully meets up with her co-fellowship* members to share stories of her work every week and 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 Micro Finance loans.
