A loan helped To pay for the maintenance of her tricycle.
Her name is Marivic, 48, a resident of Coron, Palawan, Philippines. She is married to Herlito and has two children. She and her husband work hard to meet their everyday needs and to support her child’s schooling. Marivic operates a tricycle and has a small variety store. Her husband drives the tricycle that carries up to four passengers. In the Philippines, especially in the provinces like Palawan, a tricycle is a common means of transportation. Jeepneys and buses are limited. Very few people own a vehicle. The town people usually ride a tricycle from their homes to market, church, their friends' homes and to other destinations within their community. They even use tricycles to go from one town to the other. Marivic also has a small general store which sells, rice, sugar and other condiments. She earns a minimum of PHP 1,700 a day. To help her continue operations of her business, she is requesting a PHP 35,000 loan that she will use for repairs and maintenance of her tricycle and also to add some grocery items for her small variety store. She is positive that this will boost her income as tricycle transportation and variety store are really needed in their place. Marivic dreams to be successful in her business so she can give her children the best education possible and give them a better future. She faithfully meets up with her co-fellowship members to share stories of her work every week and were 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 microfinance loans.
