A loan of $250 helped to pay for additional stocks of salted and unsalted eggs for her business.


Marcelina's story

This is Marcelina, 61, a resident of GMA, Cavite, Philippines. She is married to Paulino and is a mother to their children. She, together with her husband, manages their household while operating the business. At this time, she is working hard to continually provide income for her everyday expenses.

Marcelina is a egg retailer. What she basically does is buy eggs from wholesalers and sell them with a little profit. Customers are attracted to buy due to the low selling prices she offers. Her regular customers are her neighbors and the local community. She earns a minimum of 500 Philippine Pesos (PHP) in sales every day.

Marcelina is requesting a loan amounting to 10,000 PHP that she will use to purchase additional stocks of salted and unsalted eggs.

Marcelina dreams that her business will continue to grow and hopes that she will have more customers that will patronize her business. She meets up with her co-fellowship* members to share stories of her life and business every week, where she also draws 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 pay microfinance loans.
