A loan of $375 helped to pay for grocery items and other products to sell in her shop..


Marilyn's story

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

Marilyn would like to apply for another 15,000 PHP loan 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 in increased profits. Her profits from the business will help to sustain her family’s daily needs and her children’s education expenses. She looks forward to this financial increase with gladness and thankfulness in her heart.

Marilyn hopes to be able to expand soon, just as she dreams of being able to provide her family with a good future through all her hard work on her business. She faithfully meets up weekly with her co-fellowship* members to share stories of her work; at these meetings, 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 comprises 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.
