About Me

my name is Edna, a mother of two. I am into salon business. I started this business a couple of months ago to boost my income and so far I can say it's good. trying to meet people's needs in term of beauty and being able to deliver is really nice. also being able to give job opportunity to someone is fulfilling. I currently have employed one employee. I am hoping to grow to the fullest potential there is in this business. my family is improving also. I am so happy that zidisha is helping in changing and transforming my life and am really grateful for this community.

My Business

I own and operate a beauty salon. I am happy that when I started I started with zidisha and am hoping that I will be able to make more with your help. currently my weekly income is like 1500 Ksh a day before expenses. I am also looking to add more services that most clients are asking for so as to increase my income and therefore need financial assistance. am also thinking of including beauty products in the shop so that all the beauty needs of my clients are met. I really hope I get help here and I will be very grateful.

Project Proposal

I intend to utilize the loan to maximize the opportunities presented by the upcoming festive season in my salon business. The funds will be strategically employed to create special holiday-themed promotions and packages, hire additional temporary staff to meet the increased demand, and adorn the salon with festive decorations to create a welcoming and celebratory atmosphere. These investments will not only attract more customers during the festive season but also foster customer loyalty for year-round success, ensuring that my salon thrives during this joyous time and beyond.
