This is Elizabeth, 62, a resident of Tanza, Cavite City, Philippines. She is a single parent and a mother to one child. With her child, she manages her household while operating a business. At this time, she is working hard to continually provide income for their everyday expenses.

Elizabeth oversees operations of their tricycle transportation business. She owns one tricycle (motorcycle with sidecar attached to it) that carries four to five passengers to their destination within the community. She earns an income through the boundary (daily quota) that her driver remits each day. Her regular customers are her neighbors in the local community. She earns a minimum of 250 PHP in sales every day.

To help her continue operating her business, she is requesting a 10,000 PHP loan. She will utilize the loan for additional spare parts and the maintenance of her tricycle. She expects a boost in her business income as she expands her business.

Elizabeth hopes to be able to have another tricycle. She faithfully meets up with her co-fellowship members to share stories of her work every week and where she can also 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 pay micro-finance loans.
