About Me

I wish to pass my gratitude to the lenders who supported me with my previous loan which went a long way to boost '‘THE PAT’s BEAUTY CENTRE’. The business has expanded and we have contracted one more employee who is helping us with 'NAIL ART'. Besides stocking the beauty products, ‘THE PAT’s BEAUTY CENTRE’ have gone a ladder higher by introducing Nail Art services to our esteemed clients. We are doing the nail art at a subsidised rate for the Jomo Kenyatta University Students who form a base of clientelle.

My Business

I wish to thank the Zidisha team for their previous loan extended to me that I have just completed repaying. This amount helped us to boost our stock at the 'THE PAT’s BEAUTY CENTRE’. We are optimistic that given more loans by Zidisha community our business will prosper. We have a two years plan that we have laid down. At the end of the two years it is expected that THE PAT’s BEAUTY CENTRE’ will have expanded further.

Loan Proposal

As we end the year and get into the festive season, The PATS beauty Centre want to take advantage of the Christmas and New Year holidays by introducing new products as well as adding stock to the existing ones. My business has bee dealing with beauty products and we now want to add stock for elegant shoes and handbags as well as dresses ad dress-tops for ladies.

Our target for dress-tops are young ladies who have just completed their secondary school education. We have identified a reliable supplier at Gikomba Market (located at Nairobi, Kenyans capita) who will be selling to us at a considerable price.

For the elegant shoes and hand bags our target is women of middle age (between 25 -40 yrs) who have a taste and who are preparing to visit their rural home around Christmas time.

At the PATs Beauty Centre, Customer satisfaction is key. We have gone a notch higher where we use whassap phone application to display any new stock that we have. That way, we keep our customers informed of the new arrival stock.

About Me

I am a lady aged 32. I live in Juja town, 40 KM from the Kenyan capital Nairobi. I have a permanent job in one the Kenyan Private University. I wish to thank Zidisha for giving me my first loan which I used to boost my beauty products business. I have been able to increase stock at the ‘THE PAT’s BEAUTY CENTRE’. Currently we are selling earrings, bracelets, hair buds, necklaces, hair extensions, hand and body lotions, perfumes, nail polish among other beauty products. I am determined to see ‘THE PAT’s BEAUTY CENTRE’ blossom to greater heights in future. I have also enrolled for short course at Jomo Kenyatta University. The course title is ‘ENTREPRENUERSHIP’. This course will go a long way to polish my business management skills and also help realize my dream of opening a beauty products supermarket in Juja town.

My Business

At ‘THE PAT’s BEAUTY CENTRE’ (The business name) our motto is ‘VARIETY with QUALITY’. As the business blossoms, we are still increasing stock using our net profit which is currently at 92USD after paying USD33 rent, 5USD electricity bill and 22USD transport. I will commit to pay the loan with part of the net profit and use the remaining to plough it back to the business. The business has been in operation since December 2013 and the trend of profits has been encouraging. It is our sincere hope that if given consecutive loans offered at Zidisha, we shall be able to achieve our motto. As the business progresses, we are hoping to expand more and eventually open a beauty products supermarket in Juja town which will be one of its kind in the locality. ‘The Pats Beauty Centre’ aims at being a supermarket of ot its kind taking care of the modern woman by providing her with ‘classy complementary looks’ and outfits
The beauty market among women is a venture that is long term as women continue having the urge to look good and more presentable. A well dressed lady can only complement this with her jewelry which we offer at THE PAT’s BEAUTY CENTRE.
