This is a White Paper in support of the mission concept of the Large Observatory for X-ray Timing (LOFT), proposed as a medium-sized ESA mission. We discuss the potential of LOFT for the study of very faint X-ray binaries, orbital period distribution of black hole X-ray binaries and neutron star spin up. For a summary, we refer to the paper.
