Marilou's story

This is Marilou, 43, a resident of Malibay, Philippines. Her husband is Felino, a vendor, and she is a mother to her children. She, together with her husband, manages their household while operating the business. At this time, she is working hard to continually provide income for their everyday expenses.

Marilou operates a buying and selling business. What she basically does is buy undergarments from wholesalers and sells them per piece/pack with a profit. The products can include underwear, handkerchiefs and other products of the like. Customers are attracted to buy due to the low selling prices and the many options she offers. Her regular customers are students and mall patrons. She earns a minimum of 500 Philippine Pesos (PHP) in sales every day.

To help her continue operations of her business, she is requesting a PHP 10,000 loan. She will be utilizing the loan to buy more quantities of products and supplies to expand her product inventory. She expects a boost in her business income as she expands her business.

Marilou dreams to have her own house and lot and hopes to be able to give her family a good future 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 this is 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 pay microfinance loans.
