A loan helped to pay for the spare parts and maintenance of their Tricycle unit.

Mercedez's story

This is Mercedez, 46, a resident of Dasmariñas, Cavite, Philippines. She is married to Neptalie and a mother to her children. She and her husband manage their own household. At this time, she is working hard to continually provide income for her everyday expenses.

Mercedez 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 remits a boundary (daily quota) each day to her. In her business the regular customers are the local community. She earns a minimum of 500 PHP every day.

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

Mercedez dreams of giving her children a high-quality education through all her hard work on her business. She faithfully meets up with her co-fellowship members to share stories of her work every week and where she can also 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 Micro Finance loans.
