A loan of $775 helped to pay for the spare parts and maintenance of their jeepney unit.

Mary Ann's story

This is Mary Ann, she previously accessed an 30,000 PHP loan that she used to buy spare parts, accessories and to pay for the maintenance of their jeepney unit. Her earnings were a big help in funding the education of her children and in their personal, household and business expenditures.

Mary Ann would like to apply for another 32,000 PHP loan for her to buy spare parts and for the maintenance of their jeepney unit. Her profits from her business will definitely help her to sustain their daily needs and to pay for the educational expenses of her children. She looks forward to this financial increase with gladness and thankfulness in her heart.

Mary Ann dreams of being able to buy another jeepney soon. She also dreams that her children will finish their education. She faithfully meets up with her co-fellowship* members to share stories of her work every week.

**Jeepneys have purely American origins. They were first used by American soldiers helping the Philippines throw off the invading Japanese. Filipino ingenuity, however, managed to see this vehicle as an opportunity to earn income, and modified the Jeep into a 20-seater jeepney, open enough to provide adequate ventilation, sturdy for every day travel, and cheap enough to buy and maintain. Now, the jeepneys are one of the things that makes the Philippines truly Philippines.
