Myra's story

This is Myra, 43, a resident of Bacoor, Cavite, Philippines. She is married to Rolando, a driver. She is also a mother to her children. With her husband, she manages their household while operating the business. At this time, she is working hard to continually provide income for her everyday expenses.

Myra maintains a direct selling business. She sells clothing, footwear, undergarments, cosmetics and other products through popular direct selling brands like Avon, Fuller Life, Natasha, Boardwalk, Marikina Shoe Exchange, and other direct selling brands. A customer's order is bought in cash by the dealer and then given to the customer with a one-month-to-pay credit. Because the dealer’s prices are lower than those listed in the catalogue, the dealer is able to make a profit on the items. Her regular customers are her neighbors and the local community. She earns a minimum of 2,000 PHP in sales every week.

To help her continue operating her business, she is requesting a 24,000 PHP loan. She will utilize the loan to buy additional supplies and merchandise products like shampoo, cologne, deodorant, perfume, soap, fabric softener, undergarments and other products needed in her business. She expects a boost in her business income as she expands her business.

Myra dreams to expand her business and hopes that her family will have good health. She faithfully meets with her co-fellowship members to share stories of her work every week and to 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 micro finance loans.
