A loan of $500 helped to pay for additional supplies like coffee and tea needed in her business.


Marissa's story

This is Marissa, She previously accessed a 13,000 PHP loan that she used to purchase merchandise items and products needed in her business. Her earnings were a big help for her children’s education and in their personal, household and business expenditures.

She would like to apply for another 20,000 PHP loan for her to buy additional supplies like coffee and tea to increase her product inventory. The more items she has on display and available on hand the better. More items to sell will result in a better profit. Her profits from business will definitely help her to sustain her children’s education and daily needs. She looks forward to this financial increase with gladness and thankfulness in her heart.

Marissa hopes to give her children a good and quality education and dreams of having a good life through all her hard work on her business. 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 Micro Finance loans.
