A loan of $575 helped to pay for spare parts and maintenance for her tricycle (motorcycle).


Mercedes's story

This is Mercedes. Her previous loan was a big help to her business for she was able to buy the spare parts and accessories for her tricycle. Her loan was also helpful in the education of her children. Her income from the business assisted her with her everyday expenses at home. She and her husband are helping each other to provide for their everyday needs.

Mercedes would like to apply for another 25,000 PHP loan to buy spare parts and for the maintenance of her motorcycle. Additional profits will definitely help her to sustain her daily needs. She looks forward to this financial increase with gladness and thankfulness in her heart.

Mercedes dreams of expanding her business. She meets up with her co-fellowship* members every week 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.
