Diostita is a hard-working mother who offers tricycle transportation to earn a living. (Her tricycle is a motorcycle with sidecar.) This is much more expensive than a tri-bike but the owners make a bigger income. Her supportive husband, Reynaldo, is a driver and manages their transport business. Diostita and Reynaldo offer good service to people in their village. She appreciates that the organization has helped her improve her business and her quality of life.

Diostita has requested a loan of 15,000 Php for the maintenance of their tricycle including needed spare parts. She hopes to buy another tricycle in the future for more work. Diostita is hoping that her transport business will help her with the financial needs of her family and support her grand childrens' education so that they are able to move forward out of poverty. She positively believes their lives can be changed.
