Flaviana's priority in life is to earn an income for the education of her children. She is 48 years old, married and has four school age children.
She used her skills in hair cutting and coloring and established a beauty salon as source of her income. She has been in this business for almost four years and earns about PHP 3,000 monthly.
Flaviana is now requesting a loan of PHP 10,000 to buy more items such as scissors, cutters, towels, blowers, powders and hair dyes to use in her salon. She wants to purchase these necessary items to offer better services to her customers.
In the future, she would like to continuously provide a good education for her children to earn a degree and to seek for better employment someday.
