“God always plan the best things for us, just trust in Him” said Erlinda. It was this quote that was her motivating factor to move forward in expanding her business and in overcoming difficulties of life. Erlinda was very lucky to have her business continuously grow through her sacrifices. She really wants her business to develop into a grocery store someday and is working very hard to realize her dream. She is asking to borrow loan amounting to PHP 9,000 as additional working capital.
She also maintains an eatery business and despite her busy days in the business, Erlinda still does not forget her obligation to her family especially during Sundays when her while family attends mass in their local Church. She is married to Rudy who works with her in their business. They were blessed with 3 children who were all married already. Her daily income from the business is mostly used to reinvest in her business.
