A loan of $750 helped to pay for spare parts and maintenance of her jeepney vehicle.

Amelia's story

This is Amelia. She previously accessed a 21,000 PHP loan that she used to buy spare parts and accessories, and to pay for the maintenance, of their jeepney unit. Her earnings were a big help with their personal, household and business expenditures. She would like to apply for a 30,000 PHP loan to buy spare parts and for the maintenance of their jeepney. Her profits from her business will definitely help her to sustain their daily needs. She looks forward to this financial increase with gladness and thankfulness in her heart. Amelia hopes that her business will continue to expand and dreams of having more business. She meets with her co-fellowship* members to share stories of her life and business every week, where she can also draw strength and inspiration from the Word of God she studies.

- Curiously, 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, 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 the Philippines.
