This is Dante, 48, a resident of Tanza, Cavite, Philippines. He is married to Aurcinia, his business partner and the mother of his children. He is working hard to continually provide income for their everyday expenses.

Dante oversees the operation of their Jeepney transportation business. They have one unit of Jeepney that carries up to 16 passengers to their destinations within the community. Dante and Aurcinia earn from the boundary payment (a fixed-amount, daily), which their driver remits every day. Their regular passengers and customers are from the local community. They earn a minimum of 1,000 Philippine Pesos (PHP) in boundary every day.

To help him continue operations of his business, Dante is requesting a PHP 10,000 loan. He will use the loan for the maintenance of his Jeepney unit. He expects a boost in his business income as he expands his business. Dante hopes to have more Jeepneys and dreams of being more successful in life, by the grace of God. He meets with his co-fellowship members* every week, to share stories of his life and business and to draw strength and inspiration from the Word of God he 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.

On Friday November 8, 2013, Super Typhoon Haiyan made its way through Southeast Asia, causing substantial damage to homes and businesses in areas of the Philippines. Given the state of devastation following this storm, borrowers living and working in these areas may have difficulty making repayments on their loans, thus making their Kiva loans higher risk. More information >>
