A loan of $500 helped to buy chemicals needed for hair rebonding and cold waves, nail polish and chemicals needed for foot spas.


Mercedes's story

Being separated has made Mercedes a strong-willed person. She has five children: two of them are already married while the other three are working. For her not to depend on remittances from her children, Mercedes offers beauty services and manicure/pedicure. From her beauty salon, she is generating a minimum of 300 Philippine pesos (PHP) a day which has been very helpful in supporting her daily food intake.

Wanting to further develop her business, Mercedes is requesting a loan of 20,000 PHP. She intends to use the loan to buy necessary chemicals needed for hair rebonding and cold waves, nail polish and chemicals needed for foot spas. Mercedes believes that this loan will have a great impact on developing her business.
