A loan of $375 helped to pay for spare parts and maintenance for her pedicabs.

Remegia's story

Remegia, 57, is a resident of Manila, Philippines. She is married to Eddie, a pedicab driver, and is a mother to her four children. She manages her household while also operating her business. She works hard to continually provide income for her family's everyday expenses.

Renegia operates a side car transportation business. She has three units of side cars, or bicycle carts that carry up to two passengers, which transport people to their destinations within the community. Her regular customers are workers and employees in the community. She earns a minimum of 300 Philippine Pesos (PHP) every day.

To help her continue operating her business, Renegia is requesting a loan of PHP 15,000. She will use the loan to pay for spare parts and maintenance of the pedicab units. She expects a boost in her business income as she expands her business.

Remegia dreams that her business will continue to be successful and she will be able to acquire more pedicabs. She meets with her co-fellowship members to share stories of her life and business every week. During these meetings, she also draws strength and inspiration from the Word of God that she studies.

* All CCT community partners/clients are organized into fellowship groups that meet on a weekly basis. A fellowship group is comprised 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.
