Terrylyn's story

This is Terrylyn, resident of Batasan, Philippines. She is married to Elbert, a driver and father of her children. She, together with her husband, manages their own household while operating the business. At this time, she is working hard to continually provide income for their everyday expenses.

Terryly retails processed meat products. What she basically does is buy processed meat products from wholesalers and then sells them per piece/pack with a profit. Products can range from ham, hotdogs, processed pork and other products of the like. Customers are attracted to buy due to the low selling prices and the many options Terrylyn offers. Her regular customers are her neighbors and the local community. She is also working as a cutter in a tailoring shop. She earns a minimum of PHP300 in sales every day.

To help her continue operations of her business, she is requesting a PHP18, 000 loan. She will be utilizing the loan to buy more quantities and varieties of frozen products like hotdogs, ham, stuffed meat and other frozen meat products to expand her product inventory. She expects a boost in her income as she expands her business.

Terrylyn dreams of having their own house and hopes to have a stable job and business. She faithfully meets up with her co-fellowship* members to share stories of her work every week, which is where she can also draw strength and inspiration from the Word of God that she studies.
