Aida operates a resident care facility, Psalm 91 in El Paso, Texas. The business name comes from the Bible passage which begins “Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty.” Aida’s passion to care for individuals comes from need to help the community and her strong spiritual beliefs.

Aida has more than seven years of experience in the field and turned to Accion Texas Inc. after being referred from Project Vida in El Paso. Project Vida provides low cost health care through seven clinics based on a family’s income.

Once Aida applied for a microloan at Accion, she received the news that she was approved for a $1,650 loan. She used her Accion loan to repair air conditioning units at her business. Aida says “the Accion loan helped me improve my resident care.”

Currently, Aida employs one person at this present time and her long term goal is to hire additional employees to assist her with the residents.
