Because CCENT is a low leverl certification you should not expect to get a good amount at the end of the month, this is just the begginning for what the Network and Communications world is.
Of course that with that cert you could get the oportunity in the Cisco Environment, with a parther or even with Cisco it self.
If you want to see this just as money, you should consider if the time that this requieres will give you something in future.
Currently I'm CCNP, working at Cisco and so far away from home (more that 1 thousand kms away from mom and dad). And I took this oportunity because of the growth that I know that I will get not just at this moment, also in the next years.
Something that I learned is that to get the money, you have to do really well your job, and to do that, you have to invest time in training and dedication.
Hope my comment can be helpfull for you.
