A loan of $625 helped to pay for spare parts, accessories, and maintenance of her jeepney unit.

Eufemia's story

This is Eufemia. Her previous loan was a big help in her business. She was able to buy the needed spare parts and accessories for her jeepney.* The loan also helped in the education of her children and in her household expenditures. She has had this business for ten years already. She and her husband woek hard to provide for their family's everyday needs.

Eufemia would like to apply for another 25,000 PHP loan to buy spare parts and for the maintenance of her tricycle unit. Her profits from her business will definitely help cover her family's daily needs and pay for her children's education. She looks forward to this financial increase with gladness and thankfulness in her heart.

Eufemia dreams that her business will expand and hopes that her children will finish their studies. She meets with her co-fellowship members** every week to share stories of her work and to find strength and encouragement from the word of God, which 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 enough 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.

** 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 microfinance loans.
