A loan of $700 helped to pay for medical supplies, which she will resell to customers.


Mary Irene's story

This is Mary Irene. She previously accessed an 10,000 PHP loan that she used to buy medical supplies, which she will resell to customers. Her earnings were a big help in their personal, household and business expenditures. She also sells school supplies and in catering business for additional income. She would like to apply for another 30,000 PHP loan for her to buy medical supplies, which she will resell to customers. The more mineral water displayed at the store the better. More items to sell will result in better profit. Her profits from the business will definitely help her to sustain her daily needs. She looks forward to this financial increase with gladness and thankfulness in her heart.

Mary Irene dreams to have a branch soon and hopes to have her own family in five years. She meets with her co-fellowship members* every week, to share stories of her life and business and to draw strength and inspiration from the group members and 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. The fellowship groups gather each week to study the Word of God, build social capital, and pay microfinance loans.
