Anilyn's story

This is Anilyn, 39, a resident of Cabrera, Philippines. She is married to Gilberto, a vendor, and they have children. She, together with her husband, manages their household while operating the business. She works hard to provide income for their everyday expenses.

Anilyn operates the buy-and-sell business of her family. What she basically does is buy general merchandise from wholesalers and sell for a little profit. Her products are men and women’s clothes and other products of the like. Customers are attracted to buy due to the low selling prices and the many options she offers. Her regular customers are her neighbors and the local community. She earns a minimum of 300 Philippine Pesos (PHP) in sales every day.

To help her continue operations of her business, she is requesting a Php 50,000 loan. She will be utilizing the loan to buy RTW products and merchandise items like men's and women’s wear to expand her product inventory.

Anilyn hopes to have another stall. She dreams of giving her children a good life and education. She meets up with her co-fellowship* members to share stories of her life and business 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 Micro Finance loans.
