Joy has been running a beauty salon business for one year. She is a married woman with only one child. Her main priority is to increase her sales and profit. To make her dreams possible, she is seeking additional capital of PHP 10,000. She will be using this loan amount to buy hair color and other chemicals needed in her beauty salon business.
Joy is assisted daily by her mother because her husband works at her aunt's shop. She and her husband work together to have a better way of living and a viable source of income. As a beginner, she is in need of more capital. For this reason, she is asking for a loan of PHP 10,000, which will be used to buy hair color and other chemicals needed in her beauty salon. She believes that completeness of materials for her business will enable her to encourage more customers to go to her business place and will give her the assurance to earn a better income. So, she is hoping for approval of her requested loan amount.
