Marilyn's story

This is Marilyn, a 49-year-old mother of two who lives in Bacoor, Cavite, Philippines where she is married to Joseph. She and her husband manage their household while operating the business. At this time, Marilyn is working hard to continually provide income for their everyday expenses.

Marilyn operates an accessories retail business selling beaded jewelry such as necklaces. Her regular customers are students and mall patrons attracted by her low selling prices and the many choices she offers. She earns a minimum of 500 Philippine Pesos (PHP) in sales everyday.

To help her continue operations of her business, Marilyn is requesting a Php 25,000 loan to buy more quantities and varieties of accessory products to expand her inventory.

Marilyn hopes to expand her business and dreams of having a good life. She meets up with her co-fellowship members to share stories of her work every week and draw strength and inspiration from the Word of God she studies.

* All CCT community partners / clients are organized into fellowship groups consisting of 15 to 30 community partners who meet on a weekly basis to study the Word of God, build social capital, and pay micro finance loans.
