A loan of $375 helped to pay for grocery items, toiletries and beverages needed in her business.

Marilou's story

This is Marilou. She previously accessed a loan of 10,000 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, as well as in their personal, household and business expenditures.

She would like to apply for another loan of 15,000 PHP to buy groceries, toiletries, beverages and other products to add in her inventory. The more items displayed at the store the better. More items to sell will result in a better profit. Her profits from the business will definitely help sustain her family’s daily needs and children’s education expenses. She looks forward to this financial increase with gladness and thankfulness in her heart.

Marilou hopes that her business will grow bigger and dreams that her children will finish their studies. She faithfully meets up weekly with her co-fellowship* members to share stories of her work and draw strength and inspiration from studying the Word of God.

* 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 who gather each week to study the Word of God, build social capital, and repay microfinance loans.
