During this time of COVID-19, people need funds for many different reasons. With regard to the recent salary loan applications that have been made through the Access platform, here is what we’ve learned so far:
What we can gleam from this is that despite the limited sources of funding at this time, education is still a priority. As concern for our students’ safety has forced a shift from physical classrooms to virtual ones, people have had to invest more on better devices and internet service. But with limited income opportunities, parents have had to use alternative methods, such as bartering, in order to get the devices their children need to access online classes. …
My name is Josef Paul Oira. I am 25 years old and I have been working as a Full-Stack Developer for IDC Manpower Services for almost two years now. Since the pandemic started, its impact was huge for most of us. Everyone was struggling emotionally and financially since there was a lot of changes in our community even up to this time. It is difficult to make an adjustment especially when are you used to the lifestyle that we had before the pandemic.
We all know that there was a lot of people who lost their jobs. Luckily, I am one of those people who are still employed despite this crisis that we are facing. My family was really affected too, so I was the only one who can support them financially. I had to make changes in my budget because I had to prioritize our monthly bills and our other urgent needs. It made me realize that when everything is unsure, we always need to be prepared. …

Never have people been more aware of the importance of saving than during this pandemic. With a current unemployment rate of 10% as of July 2020, setting aside funds for a rainy day is top of mind for many, though sometimes, being a top of mind concern isn’t enough. With spending being as easy as a few clicks on your phone without ever having to leave the home, even someone with discipline and self control will find saving difficult.
Access is a platform focused on providing alternative financial solutions to its corporate and community partners. …
My name is Jayvee Velasco, and I am 28 years old. I am married and we have a seven-year old child. I have been working as a Warehouse Assistant for The Table Group, Inc. for a year now. It has been a tough battle for our family for the past months.
We all know that it is not easy to deal with this health crisis because it affects almost everything. During the ECQ, our work operations were suspended so I had no source of income except from the small business that we put up before the quarantine. Despite having a small business, we still had to adjust our daily finances. …
In a previous article, we discussed the new-look dashboard of Access. Now, let us share with you two more updates to our platform!

User log in has been separated into two: Corporate (more on this below) and Community (coming soon). This separation stems from the growth of the number of Access users and the need to differentiate between users from corporate, and community partners. …
My name is Jemimah Dumawal, and I’m the Graphic Designer & Creative Lead for Bridge Southeast Asia.
I’m at the age where I have to think of my future. I wanted to save up as much as I could, so I decided that in addition to my savings deduction through Access, I would set aside the same amount, or even double it, every pay day. And even though I really miss going shopping, I’ve forced myself to stop purchasing things online to save up more.
During this time, I realized that this pandemic disrupted everything and a lot of things became uncertain. Because of this, it’s really better to save up now so I’ll be ready in case something similar happens again in the future.
