A loan of $475 helped to pay for grocery items, toiletries and beverages needed in her business.

Marilou's story

Marilou is thankful for the financial assistance extended to her, as she was able to buy more products for her variety store. Her income from business helped in her family's everyday expenses at home. She and her partner work hard to provide for their everyday expenses.

She would like to apply for another loan of 20,000 PHP to buy groceries, toiletries, beverages and other products to add to her current 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 her to sustain her family's daily needs. She looks forward to this financial increase with gladness and thankfulness in her heart.

Marilou hopes to be more successful in business and dreams of giving her family a good future. She meets with her co-fellowship* members to share stories of her life and business every week. The fellowship group is also a place she can 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.
