A loan of $450 helped to pay for gardening materials and supplies for her business.


Erlinda's story

This is Erlinda. She previously accessed a PHP 16,000 loan that she utilized to buy gardening materials and supplies needed in her business. Her earnings were a big help in her personal, household, and business expenditures.

She would like to apply for another loan, this time in the amount of PHP 18,000. She will be utilizing the loan to buy gardening materials, like wire and baskets and supplies, such as seed and fertilizer needed in her business. Her profits from this business will definitely help her sustain her daily needs. She looks forward to this financial increase with gladness and thankfulness in her heart.

Erlinda hopes for continuous growth in her business and dreams to have a good life. Every week, she meets up with her co-fellowship members to share stories of her work and draw strength and inspiration from the Word of God she studies.
