My name is Rebecca. I am married with two children - a boy and a girl who are now in school. I was born and raised near Nairobi which is the capital city of Kenya. I grew up in a semi-urban set up and I did my school up to secondary school.
I later did a short course in hair care a beauty. I got jobs on short contracts and later with the help of my husband, started a beauty salon. I do hair work and I also sell beauty products such as hair pieces and body lotions.
One of my children would like to be a teacher and the other one a doctor when they grow up. I work very hard to bring their dreams into reality.
My work entails hair care for women as well as sales of beauty products. I mostly serve the working people such as teachers, office workers who work around my area. I am usually busy over the weekends when most of clients have time for beauty work.
I do make around $150 per month and I use $45 for over heads. I then spend the remaining balance to cater for my family expenses such as food and clothing. I hope to move my business to a bigger place once I get good money.
I will use the money to buy more beauty product to sell to my customers. I will buy lotions, creams and hair pieces since these are the items that move very fast. I hope to make a profit of about 30% from the anticipated sales and this will improve my life greatly.
The money realized will support my family, help expand the business and repay the loan at the same time.
