A loan of $700 helped to pay for spare parts and maintenance of her jeepney vehicle.

Amelia's story

Amelia is very thankful for the previous financial assistance extended to her, as she was able to buy needed spare parts and accessories for her jeepney unit. Her income from this business also helped pay her everyday household expenditures. She has been in this business for 18 years. She and her husband are working hard to provide for their everyday needs.

She would like to apply for another 30,000 PHP loan to buy spare parts and maintain their jeepney unit. Her profits from this business will definitely help her sustain their daily needs. She looks forward to this financial increase with gladness and thankfulness in her heart.

Amelia dreams of having another jeepney unit and hopes to have a better life. She meets with her co-fellowship* members to share stories of her life and business every week, 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. 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. Now, the jeepneys are one of the things that makes the Philippines truly the Philippines.
