Gary Lorenzo's story

This is Gary, a 33-year-old resident of Silang, Cavite, Philippines. He is married to Jean, a computer encoder and mother to their child. Gary, together with his wife, manages their household while operating the business. At this time, he is working hard to continually provide income for their everyday expenses.

Gary maintains a tricycle business. He owns and drives a tricycle (motorcycle with sidecar) that carries up to four passengers to their destination within the community. He works from early in the morning until late in the evening, earning a minimum of Php 400 everyday. His regular customers are his neighbors and the local community.

To help him continue operations of his business, Gary is requesting a loan of Php 11,000 to buy motorcycle parts for the maintenance of his tricycle unit. He has to maintain it in good condition in order to have a regular income for the daily needs of his family.

Gary hopes to support his child's schooling up to college level. He faithfully meets up with his co-fellowship* members to share stories of his work every week and 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 gathering each week to study the Word of God, build social capital, and pay Micro Finance loans.
