A loan of $425 helped to pay for grocery items, toiletries and beverages needed in her business.

Marilyn's story

This is Marilyn. Her previous loan was a big help in her business. She was able to buy all the products needed in her variety store. She and her husband are working hard to provide income for their everyday expenses. Her loan also helped in the education of their children.

She would like to apply for another 17,000 PHP loan for her 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 better profit. Profits from her business will definitely help 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 dreams of giving her children a good quality education and hopes that her business will expand even more. 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.
