About Me

I am the second born in a family of six children,I attended Ezra Gumbe primary schhol for primary education and sega township for secondary education,however I did not complete secondary education due to lack of fees.
after dropping from school at form three,life became very tough, i was sponsored by a NGO for a vocational training where I trained as a beautician, I then worked for several people as I save for my own business. After two years with $300 saving and $100 loan ,I decided to open my own salon, due to my good quality work, creating a clientele base was easy and that is how my business was born.
I have three year old kid, he fancies planes and says he wants to be a pilot in future. I decided to insure his education so that he is able to achieve his dreams.
I love dancing and singing during my free time, I also love meeting new people and making new friends.

My Business

I provide beauty services,which include hair dressing,massage,manicure and pedicure. The demand for services are high because of the dense population and my quality work.
I choose the beauty industry since I had love it since I was young. I am happy I earn a living and gets job satisfaction.
My typical costs per month are $140 and my monthly revenues are average $320-$400 per month.
I use the money in taking care of my son,buying food for my family ,and paying fees for my sibling. I also save for business improvement.

Loan Proposal

I thank zidisha for enabling me to expand my business.I now have opened a new branch which i believe will help me double my income and improve my living standards. I would spend the loan on two high quality blow driers at $200 each. I would be so grateful and humbled for your support once again.thank you
