About Me

I am the second born in a family of three girls and live in Kiwanja village behind Kenyatta University. I am a business lady and my hobbies are traveling, socializing and dancing. I pursued bachelor of commerce specializing in finance and CPA section 1-4.

I decided to venture into my hairdressing business because I wanted to create employment opportunities for our youngsters in Kenya in search of a job and also to inspire them to start their own businesses using their skills rather than tarmacking for so many years looking for a white collar job.

Hairdressing has been my passion since I was a young girl, I love coming up with new styles.

My Business

My source of income is from my hairdressing business. The services I offer to my clients include braiding, weaving, styling, applying chemicals, plaiting and many others. There is demand for these services because people need to look good and neat especially ladies.

My customers prefer me because I am very welcoming, I listen to their needs regarding what they want with their hair and I am efficient. My braiding is so neat that my customers recommend my service to their friends and colleagues.

The business is profitable because after two to three weeks the client will have to come back for some hair repairs or some new hairdo. As in every business, my challenge is to stay competitive and therefore I do my best to come up with the latest ideas in hair care design and product information.

Loan Proposal

The loan will be used to buy a bonnet hood dryer for my business. The hood dryer will be of benefit to my business because I will be in a position to offer drying services to my clients efficiently and effectively.I kindly request Zidisha lenders to support me in making this purchase. This will boost my business and help me go a long way in achieving my goal to create employment for our youths as well as act as a source of inspiration to them too.
