Myrna's story

Myrna is a 48-year-old resident of Estancia, Iloilo, Philippines and she is married to Alex. She and his husband manage their household while operating the business. They work hard for their child and to provide income for their everyday needs.

Myrna maintains a direct selling business. She sells clothing, footwear, undergarments, cosmetics and other products through the popular direct selling brands like Avon, Fuller life, Natasha, Boardwalk, Marikina Shoe Exchange, and other direct selling brands. A customers order is bought in cash by the dealer and then given to the customer with a one-month-to-pay credit. Dealer’s prices are lower than those in the catalogue, and these are the profits that dealers are investing in as their income. Myrna is also a water distributor and it helps with their everyday expenses. Her regular customers are her neighbors and the local community. She earns a minimum of PHP 2,000 in sales every week.

To help her continue operations of her business, she is requesting a PHP 10,000 loan. She will be utilizing the loan to buy additional supplies and merchandise products like shampoo, cologne, deodorant, perfume, soap, fabric softener, undergarments, and other products needed in her business.

Myrna dreams to become successful both in business and in life. She meets up with her co-fellowship* members to share stories of her life and business every week and where she can also draw strength and inspiration from the fellowship and 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 pay Micro Finance loans.
