A loan of $300 helped to use in the overhaul repair of his tricycle.


Elimar's story

Elimar is 36-years-old, and married with three children. His responsibility is to give a good way of living to his family, but so far isn’t able to achieve it. This is due to the difficult living and poor economic stability plus the fact that his tricycle has poor performance. So no matter how he has tried to strive, he keeps on falling. But Elimar still has big faith and hope. He dreams to have a higher income from his transportation business and could attain this through requesting a loan of PHP 12,000 to use in the overhaul repair of his tricycle. He hopes that after providing for the needs of his tricycle, he would be blessed with a higher income.
