Zenaida's story

This is Zenaida M. from Bagong Silang, Caloocan City. She is a mother to four children. All but one of her children study in different school levels. Her husband Stephen is a freelance videographer/photographer.

Zenaida manages a photo/video coverage studio. She negotiates with clients while her husband does the actual video/photo coverage. They cover different functions like weddings, birthdays, graduation ceremonies and other family oriented activities. Zenaida’s net monthly income from the studio is P10,000.00. She is happy that her profits can answer the technical needs of their business although she laments that some clients fail to redeem their photos from the studio and so are just stocked up in their archives, which translates to business losses.

Zenaida currently needs a loan of P30,000.00 to purchase some of their studio’s technical requirements like digital flash for the cameras and batteries. This will be her 14th loan cycle with the Center for Community Transformation (CCT) Credit Cooperative.
