A loan of $400 helped to pay for raw ingredients like rice, pork, chicken, and vegetables and other products needed in her business.


Marilyn's story

This is Marilyn. Her previous loan was a big help, not just in her business but also in their children's education. She was able to buy more ingredients for her food stall, which means a higher income. This has been her business for five years now. She and her husband work hard to continuously provide for their everyday needs.

She would like to apply for another loan of 16,000 Philippine Pesos (PHP) for her to purchase raw ingredients like rice, pork, chicken, and vegetables and other products needed in her business. Her profits from her business will definitely help her to sustain her daily needs and educational expenses of her children. She looks forward to this financial increase with gladness and thankfulness in her heart.

Marilyn hopes that her business will grow bigger and dreams of having a good life with her family. She meets with her co-fellowship* members every week to share stories of her work and draw strength and inspiration from the Word of God, which 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.
