Delia offers manicures, pedicures, hair cutting, hair re-bonding, hair color and hair dye in her small beauty parlor. She has already been operating the business for 26 years. According to her the business is a great source of income. With it she is able to provide the daily needs of her family. Now she wishes to expand and improve her small parlor but insufficiency of funds hinders her dream. This led Delia to request a loan of PHP 30,000 to buy materials to expand her parlor and to purchase new scissors, nail polish and hair color. She just hopes that her requested loan will be provided in order to make her dreams into reality.
