Eden's story

Eden T. is from the city of Calabayan, Ozamiz City. She is 29 years old. Eden is married and has three school-aged children. To make a living, she owns and operates a general store, selling a variety of different products in the local community. She has been engaged in her business for over five years and earns approximately $75 a month for these activities.

In 2007, Eden joined GDMPC to gain access to financial services to help improve her living situation and ability to engage in business activities. She has successfully repaid a previous loan from GDMPC.

Eden is requesting a new loan of 10,000 PHP which will be used to invest in expanding the business. This will be her 6th loan from GDMPC. She plans to use the additional revenue generated from the business to improve the general living conditions of her family.
