Marybeth's story

Marybeth is 40 years old and lives in Taguig, Philippines. She is married, the mother of several children and works hard to earn enough money to meet everyday expenses. She earns a living by buying men and women’s clothes from wholesalers and selling them in retail markets. Her customers like her low prices and wide selection of items for sale. Most people who buy her clothing are neighbors. She earns a minimum of 300 Philippine Pesos (PHP) every day. To help expand her business, she is applying for a loan for PHP 20,000. She will use this loan to buy more items to sell to her customers and enlarge the size of her inventory. She expects this loan to boost her business. Her goal for the future is to buy her own land and house. She faithfully meets up with fellowship* members weekly to share stories of her work and draw strength from her religion.

*All CCT community partners/clients are organized into fellowship groups that meet weekly. A fellowship group is composed of 15 to 30 people who meet to study religion, build social capital and repay microfinance loans.
