A loan of $275 helped to pay for additional stock of dried fish products needed in her business.

Rosemarie's story

Rosemarie previously accessed a loan of 16,000 Philippine pesos, which she used to buy dried fish products needed in her business. Her earnings were a big help in paying for the education of her children and for the family's personal, household and business expenditures.

Rosemarie would like to apply for another loan, for 12,000 PHP, to purchase additional stock of dried fish products needed in her business. Her profits from the business will definitely help her to sustain her family's daily needs and the educational expenses of her children. She looks forward to this financial increase with gladness and thankfulness in her heart.

Rosemarie hopes to have more variety of products and dreams that her children will finish their studies. She meets up with her co-fellowship members every week to share stories of her work and draw strength and inspiration from the Word of God, which she studies.

*All CCT community partners and 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 micro-finance loans.
