A loan of $1,200 helped to pay for grocery items, toiletries and beverages needed for her general store business.

Marilou's story

This is Marilou. Her previous loan helped her a lot in her business as she was able to buy more grocery items. This helped her in generating more income and it helped in her everyday expenses. She has been in this business for five years now. She and her husband are helping each other to provide income for their everyday needs.

She would like to apply for a new 51,000 PHP (Philippines pesos) loan for her to buy groceries, toiletries, beverages and other products to add in her current inventory. The more items displayed at the store, the better. More items to sell will result in better profit. Her profits from business will definitely help her to sustain her daily needs. She looks forward to this financial increase with gladness and thankfulness in her heart.

Marilou dreams to expand her business more and hopes for a good life for her child. She meets with her co-fellowship members to share stories of her work every week and to draw strength and inspiration from the word of God she studies.

Note: All CCT community partners and 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.
