Mercedes's story

This is Mercedes, 46, and a resident of Dasmariñas, Cavite, Philippines. She is married to Neptalie, and a mother to their children. She and her husband manage their own household. At this time, she is working hard to continually provide income for their everyday expenses. Mercedes oversees 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 the regular customers are the local community. She earns a minimum of Php 500 every day. To help her continue operations of her business, she is requesting a Php 20,000 loan. She will be utilizing the loan to buy spare parts, accessories and also for the maintenance of their motorcycle. She expects a boost in her business income as she expands her business. Mercedes dreams of being able to give her family a good life and hopes to give her children and grandchildren a good and 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 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.
