Anita is into direct selling of cosmetics. Like most Filipina women entrepreneurs, she gets rebates from items that she gets from reputable cosmetics and apparel companies on consignment (Avon, Sarah Lee, Board Walk, Natasha, etc.) and sells them to customers on an installment basis. She also makes rags from fabric trimmings and sells them to customers. She also repacks and retails powder detergent. She is also selling electronic load credits for mobile phones. These combined activities give Anita a sure net income of at least P16,000.00 a month.
She joined the Center for Community Transformation (CCT) Credit Cooperative in 2005. She has learned from the cooperative the value of saving for the future. She used her savings for the renovation of their house. She wishes to see all her children finish their education.
Anita has applied for a new loan with the cooperative amounting to P50,000.00 as additional capital to keep her businesses going.
