Vivian P., 40, separated with 2 children, lives in Taglimao, Cagayan de Oro City, Southern Philippines. Everyday, she strives hard to support for the needs of her children. At young age, she started to support herself and lived on her own because her parents were separated and could not provide their daily needs. Currently, she is into home service manicure and pedicure and also tends a variety store. She wishes to expand her expertise that’s why she wants to engage into hair cutting and dressing. This would be her 2nd loan with HSPFI amounting to PHP 8,000 to purchase the materials needed for her new business. Someday, she dreamed of having her own beauty salon.
