My name is Elizabeth Alex. I am a married mother of 3 children aged between 10 and 3 years. I was born in Kitui - Kenya and I spent my childhood years in school while at the same time helping my parents with their daily chores. I would occasionally help them in their farming activities.
I got married shortly after finishing my secondary school education and I now live in Mombasa with my family.
I run a beauty parlor in my estate where I offer a wide range of services such as hair care, pedicure and manicure. I have been running this business for the last 5 years and I have watched it grow by leaps and bounds.
I serve about 10 clients daily. I use the income to run my family budget.
I am on an expansion plan which is going on well with loans from Zidisha. My next stop is adding furniture and fixtures in my premises. With this money, I will be able to buy more chairs which my clients will use while waiting to be served. I will also fix shelves and pigeon holes which I will use to store my stock and equipment.
In case my plans fail, I will ask my husband to assist me in repaying this loan. He has a big solid business which will come in handy if the unexpected happens.
