A loan of $1,175 helped to pay for more fabric, needles, and other materials needed in her business.

Merlyn's story

This is Merlyn. Her previous loan was a big help in her business. She was able to buy more of the materials needed in her tailoring business. She also has a business buying and selling various silver accessories. Her business helps her with the studies of her children. She and her husband are working hard to provide for their everyday needs. She would like to apply for another 50,000 PHP loan to buy additional supplies, such as fabrics, needles, and other items needed for her business. Her business profits will definitely help her to cover her daily needs and the children’s education costs. She looks forward to this financial increase with gladness and thankfulness in her heart. Merlyn hopes to be a successful businesswoman and dreams that her children will have a good life. Every week, she goes to meetings with her co-fellowship* members to share stories of her work and to 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 microfinance loans.
