Heda's story

This is Heda, 58, a resident of Taguig, Philippines. She is a single parent of three children. By the grace of God, she has managed to support her children's schooling. Heda works hard to continually provide income for the family's everyday expenses

Heda oversees operations of their tricycle transportation business. They have one tricycle unit that carries up to four passengers to their destination within the community. The tricycle driver then remits a boundary (daily quota) each day to Heda. She also manages an apartment rental for additional income. Her regular customers are her neighbors and the local community. Heda earns a minimum of PHP 400 every day.

To help her continue operations of her business, Heda is requesting a PHP 20,000 loan, which she will use to pay for spare parts, accessories and maintenance of her motorcycle. She expects a boost in her business income as she expands her business.

Heda dreams of being able to give her children a good and high quality education through all her hard work on her business. She faithfully meets up with her co-fellowship* members weekly to share stories of her work and to 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 repay microfinance loans.
