Melanie's story

Melanie, a resident of Silang, Cavite, Philippines, is married to Jemuel and has one child. She works hard to continually provide income for her everyday expenses.

Melanie oversees operations of the family's 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) to Melanie. She earns a minimum of PHP 500 every day.

To help Melanie continue operations of her business, she is requesting a PHP 15,000 loan, which she will use to buy spare parts and accessories and to maintain their motorcycle. Melanie expects a boost in her business income as she expands her business.

Melanie dreams of being able to give her family a good life 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.
