A loan of $350 helped to pay for the spare parts and maintenance of his Jeepney.

Romeo's story

Romeo previously accessed an 10,000 PHP loan that he used to buy spare parts, accessories and for the maintenance of his Jeepney. His earnings were a big help for the education of his children and in their personal, household and business expenditures.

He would like to apply for another 15,000 PHP loan to buy spare parts and for the maintenance of his Jeepney. His profits from his business will definitely help him to sustain daily needs and educational expenses of his children. He looks forward to this financial increase with gladness and thankfulness in his heart.

Romeo dreams for his children to finish their studies and still hopes to get another Jeepney unit. He meets up with his fellowship members to share stories of his work every week where he finds strength and inspiration from the Word of God he studies.

-Curiously, Jeepneys have purely American origins. They were first used by American soldiers helping the Philippines fight off the invading Japanese. Filipino ingenuity, however, managed to see this vehicle as an opportunity to earn money, 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 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 microfiinance loans.
