A loan of $625 helped to pay for spare parts and maintenance.

Mary Jane's story

This is Mary Jane. She previously accessed a 15,000 PHP loan that she used to pay for spare parts, accessories, and maintenance of their jeepney unit. Her earnings were a big help in their personal household and business expenditures.

She would like to apply for another 25,000 PHP loan for spare parts and for maintenance of their jeepney unit. 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.

Mary Jane hopes that her business will continue to grow and she dreams of having a better living. She meets up with her co-fellowship members to share stories of her work every week. Here 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 against 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 Philippines.
