A loan of $1,175 helped to pay for the beauty products and hair products needed in her salon.


Nelly's story

Nelly owns and operates a beauty salon to earn a living. She has been successful in this business for almost 25 years, and she repaid her previous loan used for the business. She also finds ways to improve her income by operating her own transportation business. She has a unit of taxi, jeepney, and tricycle.

For these businesses, she would like to take a new loan to improve her service. She is requesting an amount of 50,000 Philippines pesos (PHP) to buy more beauty and hair products like straightening treatment and others needed in her business. A portion of the loan will also be used for the maintenance of her transportation vehicles.

In the future, Nelly wants to make improvements in her business and likewise add more transportation units. She also dreams that her children will be open-minded and be properly orientated on putting and growing their own. She faithfully meets up with her co-fellowship* members to share stories of her work every week and to draw strength and inspiration from the Word of God she studies.

* All CCT community partners / clients are organized into fellowship groups that meet on a weekly basis. A fellowship group is composed of 15 to 30 community partners. The fellowship groups gather each week to study the Word of God, build social capital, and pay Micro Finance loans.
