Anelyn's story

This is Anelyn, 46, a resident of Bacoor, Cavite, Philippines. She is married to Arthur, an employee, and is a mother to their children. She, together with her husband, manages their household while operating the business. She and her husband are working hard to provide income for their everyday needs.

Anelyn maintains a direct selling business. She sells clothing, footwear, undergarments, cosmetics and other products through the popular direct selling brands like Avon, Fuller Life, Natasha, Boardwalk, Marikina Shoe Exchange, and other direct selling brands. A customer's order is bought in cash by the dealer and then given to the customer with a one-month-to-pay credit. The dealer’s prices are lower than those in the catalogue, and these are the profits that dealers are getting as their income. Her regular customers are her neighbors and the local community. She earns a minimum of PHP 2000 in sales every week.

To help her continue operations of her business, she is requesting a PHP 25,000 loan. She will be utilizing the loan to buy additional supplies and merchandise products like clothing, footwear, shampoo, cologne, deodorant, perfume, soap, fabric softener, undergarments, cosmetics, and other products needed in her business.

Anelyn hopes to expand her business and dreams to have a good life. She meets up with her co-fellowship* members to share stories of her life and business every week and where she can also draw strength and inspiration from the fellowship and 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 pay microfinance loans.
