A loan of $450 helped to pay for the parts and maintenance of her tricycle unit.

Oliva's story

This is Oliva, 36, a resident of Silang, Cavite Philippines. She is married to Eddie, a worker abroad and is a mother to their children. At this time, she is working hard to continually provide income for her everyday expenses.

Oliva operates a tricycle transportation business. She has one tricycle unit 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 operation of her business, she is requesting a PHP 19,000 loan. She will use the loan to buy spare parts, accessories and to maintain the tricycle.

Oliva hopes to have more tricycles and a store of her own. She dreams that her children will finish their studies. She meets up with her co-fellowship members to share stories of her work every week and also draws 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.
