A loan of $400 helped to pay for grocery items, toiletries and beverages needed in her business.

Marilou's story

This is Marilou. Her previous loan was a big help, not just in her business but also in the education of her children as well as in their everyday household. Aside from her variety store, she also has a piggery for additional income. She and her husband, who is a security guard, are working hard to provide for their everyday needs.

She would now like to apply for a 17,000 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 better profit. Her profits from business will definitely help cover her family’s daily needs and her children’s education expenses. She looks forward to this financial increase with gladness and thankfulness in her heart.

Marilou dreams of being more successful in her business and having more customers. She is hoping to give her children a good life and education. She meets up weekly with her co-fellowship* members to share stories of her work and draw strength and inspiration from studying the Word of God.

* 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 who gather each week to study the Word of God, build social capital, and repay microfinance loans.
