Crisencio's story

This is Crisencio. He previously received a 30,000 PHP loan that he used to buy spare parts and accessories and for the maintenance of his Jeepney* unit. His earnings were a big help for the education of his children and in his personal, household, and business expenditures.

Crisencio would like to apply for another 30,000 PHP loan to buy spare parts and for the maintenance of his Jeepney unit and also to buy some equipment for his repair shop. His profits from his business will definitely help him to cover his family's daily needs and pay for his children's education. He looks forward to this financial increase with gladness and thankfulness in his heart.

Crosencio hopes to have more jeepneys and dreams that his children will have a good life and education. He meets every week with his co-fellowship** members to share stories of his life and business and also to draw strength and inspiration from the Word of God, which he studies.

* 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 They were originally made from US military jeeps left over from World War II and are known for their flamboyant decoration and crowded seating.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 enough for everyday travel, and cheap enough to buy and maintain. They have become a ubiquitous symbol of Filipino culture.

** 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.
