A loan of $700 helped to pay for spare parts and maintenance for their jeepney unit.

Bienvinida's story

This is Bienvinida. Her previous loan was a big help in her business. She was able to buy all of the necessary spare parts for her jeepney. The loan also helped with their everyday expenses at home. She and her husband are both working to provide for 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 unit. The 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.

Bienvinida hopes to be successful in her business and to help others. She meets up with her co-fellowship members to share stories of her work every week. This is where 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 throw off the invading Japanese government. Filipino ingenuity, however, managed to see this vehicle as an opportunity to earn, and modified the Jeep into a 20-seater jeepney. The modifications made it open enough to provide adequate ventilation, sturdy enough for everyday travel, and cheap enough to buy and maintain. Now, jeepneys are one of the things that makes the Philippines truly 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, to build social capital, and to repay microfinance loans.
