A loan of $450 helped to pay for spare parts, accessories, and maintenance for her Jeepney.

Eufemia's story

Eufemia is thankful for the financial assistance that has been extended to her. A previous loan enabled her to buy spare parts and accessories for her transportation business. In addition to improving her business, the loan provided income to help educate her children and pay for everyday household expenditures. She and her husband are working hard to provide for their family.

Eufemia would like to apply for another 19,000 PHP loan to buy spare parts and pay for maintenance of her Jeepney unit.* Profits from her business will help her sustain her family's daily needs and pay for her children's educational expenses. She looks forward to this financial increase with gladness and thankfulness in her heart.

Eufemia dreams that her business will continue to flourish and hopes to improve her living standards. She meets with her co-fellowship members** every week to share stories of her work and to find strength and encouragement from the word of God that she studies.

* Curiously, Jeepneys have purely American origins. They were first used by American soldiers helping the Philippines to defend themselves against the invading Japanese. Through their ingenuity, Filipinos modified the Jeep into a 20-seat Jeepney. The vehicles are 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 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 microfinance loans.
