Marife's story

Marife is a hardworking mother who operates a tricycle transport business to earn a living. A tricycle is a motorcycle with a sidecar, used as public utility vehicle. This is more expensive than a motorcycle but the owners have bigger income. Her supportive husband is the driver and manages their transport business. The couple offers good transport service for people in their village. She appreciates that the organization has helped her improve her transport business, and hence her standard of living. She has requested a loan of 30,000 Php to support the maintenance of their tricycle. Specifically, the loan fund will be used to buy needed spare parts for the tricycle. She hopes to buy another tricycle in the future for better income to support her children’s education until they complete college and find great jobs. Marife is hoping that her envisioned transport business will help her support the financial needs of her family so that they can to move forward against poverty. By then, Marife positively believe their lives would be changed and she will have her dreams achieved. The attached picture of Marife was taken December 07, 2010 with her supportive husband, the driver.
