A loan of $475 helped to buy grocery items, toiletries and beverages for her store.

Marilyn's story

This is Marilyn's twentieth loan cycle. Her last loan, just like her previous loans, helped a lot in her business. She was able to buy more products for her variety store. It also helped with the education of her children and affording everyday expenses.

She would like to apply for another 20,000 PHP loan to buy groceries, toiletries, beverages, and other products to add to her inventory. The more items displayed at the store, the better. More items to sell will result in more profit. Her profits from her business will definitely help sustain her family’s daily needs and pay for her children’s education expenses. She looks forward to this financial increase with gladness and thankfulness in her heart.

Marilyn hopes to be more successful in her business and dreams that her children will finish their studies. She meets weekly with her co-fellowship* members to share stories of her work. At these meetings, 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 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.
