About Me

My name is Maureen Obanda Omutere, I hail from western province in a place called butere.People there depend mostly on agricultural produce for upkeep but due to my zeal for traveling and school I choose to come to the capital city Nairobi to pursue my dreams in every aspect of life and also to make an impression for my fellow youth in Butere that they to can succeed in life. I managed to finish my O levels from Nyawara Girls secondary girls which is located close to Lake Victoria. Currently am studying part for hotel and catering management at Hospitality College located behind Uchumi supermarket Jogoo road.I thank GOD for His manifestation in my life because I was not able to join school for two years till early this year and He was able to take me and placed me with people who know and supply beauty that I come to appreciate the beauty in everyone. I am looking forward to open a beauty shop to relieve my parents from the role of paying my fees. I am aspiring to be one of the leading brand makers in beauty.

My Business

I have been in the beauty industry for 3 years as a salonist assistant in a salon called princess white beauty salon now I would love to venture on my own. Kenyans are very particular about how they look and this has made this industry to be among the most lucrative ventures. I will offer a service in all kinds of hair braids as well as jewelries and hair chemicals. I used to work at a salon (a place where people come and plait their hair) where I was earning a gross salary of Ksh 14000 (USD 170) with allowances of Ksh 2700 (USD 30) on monthly basis until I have decided to establish my own Business.I attend evening classes to improve my skills in the industry and to achieve more quality which will assist in satisfying my clients.My career path is being molded slowly through proper practice,as I school in hotel management have managed to attend some of the restaurants i had never even known they existed.
