A loan of $675 helped to pay for spare parts and the maintenance of their jeepney.

Rosana's story

Rosana's previous loan was a big help in her business as she was able to buy the needed spare parts and accessories for her jeepney. Her income from the business was a big help in her children's education and in their everyday expenses.

She would like to apply for another 30,000 PHP loan to buy spare parts and to pay for the maintenance of their jeepney. 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.

Rosana hopes to have another jeepney and dreams of being successful in life. She meets up with her co-fellowship** members to share stories of her life and business every week and she also draws strength and inspiration from the Word of God that she studies there.

*Curiously, Jeepneys have purely American origins. They were first used by American soldiers in helping the Philippines throw off the invading Japanese forces. 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. 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 micro-finance loans.
