Marilyn's story

This is Marilyn, 38, resident of Silang, Cavite, Philippines. She is married to Ricardo, a driver, and mother to her children. She and her husband manage their household. At this time, she is working hard to continually provide income for her everyday expenses.

Marilyn oversees the operations of their tricycle transportation business. They have one tricycle that carries up to four passengers to their destination within the community. The tricycle driver then remits a boundary (daily quota) each day to her. In her business, regular customers are from the local community. She earns a minimum of 500 Philippine pesos (PHP) every day.

To help her continue operations of her business, she is requesting a 20,000 PHP loan. She will be using the loan to buy spare parts and accessories and also for the maintenance of their motorcycle. She expects a boost in her business income as she expands her business.

Marilyn dreams of being able to give her children a good and high quality education through all her hard work in her business. She faithfully meets up with her co-fellowship members* to share stories of her work every week and 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.
