Luisa offers home service manicures and pedicures within her area. She has been doing this kind of work for more than 23 years. Luisa is hardworking and has a strong determination in life. She is married and blessed with three children. Two of her children still go to school while the other is done with her degree course.
Through the income gained from her beauty salon business, Luisa was able to improve her way of life, educate her eldest child and afford her family's basic commodities.
Luisa still aspires for continuous growth of her beauty salon business--that's the reason why she is asking for a loan of 10,000 PHP, allowing her to buy materials such as nail polish, a nail brush, acetone and nail clippers for her manicure and pedicure business. She just hopes that lenders will grant her requested loan amount so her dreams can be realized.
