A loan of $500 helped to pay for an additional supply of herbal products needed in her business.

Marissa's story

This is Marissa, she previously accessed a 20,000 PHP loan that she used to buy more herbal products for her business. Her earnings were a big help for the education of her children and in their personal, household and business expenditures.

She would like to apply for another 20,000 PHP loan to buy more herbal products needed in her business. Her profits from her business will definitely help her to sustain their daily needs and educational expenses of her child. She looks forward to this financial increase with gladness and thankfulness in her heart. She also sells charcoal for additional income.

Marissa hopes to give her child and grandchild a good education and dreams of being married to her partner. 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 microfinance loans.
