Bella Rose Ann M., 19, is single and works as a hairdresser in an established salon in Concepcion, Marikina City. She was trained by the owner of the salon when she was 13 years old and has been working there up to the present. She receives a regular income of P300-P500 per day.
Every Tuesday and Sunday, when she is on her day off, she has her own beauty care service, where she does home service for her established clients and where she earns as much as P1,500-P3,000 a day.
Now she is requesting her loan of P10,000 with Center for Community Transformation (CCT). She will use her loan to buy her own blower, manicure set, nail polish and chemicals for hair treatment and coloring. Bella hopes to put up her own salon in the near future.
Bella has been a member of CCT for a year now. CCT is a Filipino family-oriented and Bible-centered development organization that provides and creates equal business opportunities for small-scale Filipino entrepreneurs through loans and social interventions.
