Pearly's story

This is Pearly, 26, a resident of Silang, Cavite Philippines. She is married to Rico, a driver, and is 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.

Pearly oversees and owns operations of their tricycle transportation business. They have one unit of 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 Pearly. 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 10,000 loan. She will use 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.

Pearly hopes to have more tricycles and dreams of having a baby soon. She faithfully meets up every week with her co-fellowship* members to share stories of her life and business and to also draw strength and inspiration from the fellowship and 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.
