This is Victoriano, 43, resident of Silang, Cavite, Philippines. He is married to Gemma, a housewife and mother to their three children. Victoriano works hard to provide reliable income for their everyday expenses.
Victoriano oversees operations of a Jeepney transportation business. The business has one Jeep that carries up to sixteen passengers--most of whom come from the local community--to their destinations. He earns a minimum of 1,000 PHP from the quota the driver remits each day.
To help him continue operations of his business, Victoriano is requesting a 10,000 PHP loan. He will use the loan to maintain his Jeep. He expects a boost in his income as he expands his business.
Victoriano dreams of giving his family a good future. Every week, he faithfully meets up with his co-fellowship* members to share stories of his work and draw strength and inspiration from studying the Word of God.
* 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.
