A loan of $425 helped to pay for grocery items, toiletries and beverages needed in her business.


Merlita's story

This is Merlita. She previously accessed an 18,000 PHP loan that she used to purchase more quantities and varieties of grocery items and products needed in her business. Her earnings were a big help for her children’s education, and in their personal, household and business expenditures. She would like to apply for another 18,000 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 sustain 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. Merlita hopes that her business will grow bigger and dreams that her children will finish their studies. She meets up with her co-fellowship* members every week to share stories of her life and to also draw strength and inspiration from the word of God she studies. * All CCT community partners / clients are organized into fellowship groups 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.
