A loan of $350 helped to pay for the spare parts and maintenance of her jeepney unit.

Apolinaria's story

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

She would like to apply for another 15,000 PHP loan for her to buy spare parts and pay for the 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.

Apolinaria dreams to have more jeepneys. She meets up with her co-fellowship members to share stories of her life and business every week, and where she can also draw strength and inspiration from the fellowship and the Word of God she 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 They were originally made from US military jeeps left over from World War II and are known from their flamboyant decoration and crowded seating.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 every day travel, and cheap enough to buy and maintain. They have become a ubiquitous symbol of Philippine 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 Micro Finance loans.
