A loan of $675 helped to pay for spare parts, accessories, and maintenance of her tricycle unit.

Marilyn's story

Marilyn previously accessed a PHP 25,000 loan that she used to buy spare parts and accessories and to pay for the maintenance of her tricycle unit. Her earnings were a big help for the education of her children, and in her personal, household, and business expenditures.

Marilyn would like to apply for another loan, in the amount of PHP 30,000, to buy spare parts and pay for the maintenance of her tricycle unit. Her profits from her business will definitely help her to sustain her daily needs and the education of her children. She looks forward to this financial increase with gladness and thankfulness in her heart.

Marilyn dreams to be more successful in business and she hopes that all her children will finish their studies. Every week, she meets with her co-fellowship members* to share stories of her work and to draw strength and inspiration, by studying the Word of God.

* All Center for Community Transformation (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.
