Edna's story

This is Edna, 55, a resident of GMA, Cavite, Philippines. She is married to Ceferino, self-employed, and a mother to her children. She, together with her husband, manages their household as they operate the business. At this time, she and her husband are working hard to provide income to their family.

Edna operates an internet café business. Services like this become a need as customers’ demand increases. Her main patrons are students, who require her services for school requirements. She has customers who need to rent computers for business purposes, like writing a resume and office documentation, as well as customers who would just love to surf the net and visit social network sites. She earns a minimum of 500 PHP in profit every day.

To help her continue operation of her business, she is requesting an 18,000-PHP loan. She will be utilizing the loan to buy additional computer parts and accessories needed in her business. She expects a boost in her business income as she expands her business.

Edna dreams that her computer shop will be known and hopes that her children will finish their studies so they can have a grand vacation. She faithfully meets up with her co-fellowship members to share stories of her life and business every week, where she can also draw strength and inspiration from the Word of God she studies.
