A loan of $750 helped to buy spare parts and maintain her jeepney.

Dolores's story

This is Dolores. She works managing a jeepney transportation service. Jeepneys are the most popular means of public transportation in the Philippines. They were originally made from US military jeeps left over from World War II and are known from their flamboyant decoration and crowded seating. 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 everyday travel, and cheap enough to buy and maintain. They have become a ubiquitous symbol of Philippine culture.

Dolores previously received a 20,000 PHP loan that she used to buy spare parts and accessories and to maintain her jeepney. The earnings from her loan were a big help in her personal, household and business expenditures.

Dolores is requesting a 30,000 PHP loan to buy spare parts and maintain her jeepney. She will use the profits from her loan to help sustain her family’s daily needs. She looks forward to this financial increase with gladness and thankfulness in her heart. In the future, Dolores dreams of having another jeepney. She meets up weekly with her co-fellowship* members to share stories of her life and business and to draw strength and inspiration from studying the Word of God.

* All CCT community partners/clients are organized into fellowship groups that meet on a weekly basis. Fellowship groups are composed of 15 to 30 community partners who gather each week to study the Word of God, build social capital, and pay microfinance loans.
