My Business

my business involve offering salon services such as hair dressing,manicure,pedicure and facial.I started the business after finishing my college education and could not find employment,after a short while I joined Pivot college and learnt how to run my business on a professional level now I also train youths and other intrested people on skills of operating a salon.My main challenge in business is where customers come in numbers and I dont have enough equiments to sustain them and thats why am mainly interested in the funds so I may buy more necessary equipments.

Loan Proposal

I take this opportunity to thank all my lenders for facilitating my previous loan I did my best and I did not disappoint in repaying however I did not manage to buy the Drier i needed since i had less money so what I did i paid deposit of ksh9,000 my balance remained Ksh6, I again appeal to all my lender help me reach my dream by funding me I have saved some money that I will add to the funds from Zidisha and get the Drier that I need.I am sure that if I manage to add the drier to the ones I have in my salon I will manage to maintain most of my clients and I will also attract more customers and just like the previous loan repaying wont be a problem.Thank you
