About Me

when i was growing up i knew that my success in life was tied up in education because that is something with which i i did not struggle. by the time i got to university, i realized that my talents would open more doors for me than education would, so i decided to start doing the things that i knew well to do as a part time activity and for me this was in the beautification industry. i loved making people's hair, manicure, pedicure and other beauty services. i was doing great although i did not have a specific place to work from, therefore, i decided to open a business in the beautification industry once i was out of university. the decision to join the industry was inspired by the fact that many young people in my country are jobless, therefore, opening such a business would not just be beneficial to me but would create job opportunities for other young people. it is my aim to become one of the renowned business people in the beautification industry by creating more jobs for young people in my country.

My Business

as mentioned in my profile, i am in the beautification industry where i own a salon within my neighborhood although at a very young stage. so far the business is picking up well enough. however, a business in the beautification industry is well suited if placed in more populated areas like town centers. so far i have managed to bring on board two more people who help me in carrying out daily activities but my vision does not end there. there are many people in towns who do not have anything to do, therefore, if i located my business in such places i would be able to raise more income and create more jobs for young people. the expansion of my business requires financial support which i lack, and for me to achieve my set standards and expectations i must not just move to more populated areas but also diversify the products we offer. any financial help towards this course can be the breakthrough i need for the next level.

Loan Proposal

my beauty business is doing better now thanls to zidsisha. however, i am an ambitious young lady and i also do academic writing. i work with essay writers and writersbay companies. i have hired people to help me with the work mostly people who just left university before they get their dream jobs. in my country employment is an issue even with a degree, therefore, academic writing helps these young graduates earn something on their own and stop depending on their parents. currently, i only hire those with their own computers so that they can work from their location but for this business to grow i need to manage it from a single location. therefore i need to purchase a few computers and rent a space so that we can work from an office. considering that we are on low season in this business i cannot raise that amount alone and i desperately need help. the business is quite profitable, during high season one can raise up to 1000dollars a month. I'm looking forward to your generous contributions as you help me achieve my ambitious ideas.

    We are in a low season at the moment until mid march and that has affected my earnings. The academic Writing business changes in seasons and that is an inevitable situation that we always have to deal with. The jobs we do for 15 dollars during high season are now going for 5dollars. The purchase of the items as stated in the loan was successful though. at the moment i am training more people to get ready for the peak in april.
