About Me

My name is Esther Kambua, a humble Christian and a ladies' lady in my church. I was born into a poor family that struggled to educate me up to form four. Being the first born in a family of seven, I had to give way for my siblings to continue with their education.

I started to help in our neighbouring school as a PTA teacher for 2 years. From there, I decided to move to town to look for green pastures, fearing an early marriage since our culture treasures much in early marriages. I visited my aunt who lived in Mombasa and there, seeing that I liked beauty, took me to hairdressing & beauty college.

After my college, I started training others in another college, where I gained experience and saved to start my own salon. At first it was difficult, but I had faith that was born not to give up.

I am married with 2 kids, as much in early marriages.

My Business

In my business, I sell beauty products like cosmetics and types of hair (weaves and braids), together with salon services. I believe that these goods will be easier to my clients since there will be flexibility in buying them in my salon, along with the services I provide like hair do (treatment of the hair, plaiting, pedicure and manicure, etc.)

I have a passion in this business since it goes well with my profession. My profits gained from my business are used to pay school fees and reinvest in growing the business.

Loan Proposal

with this amount will clear my training fee balance 4000ksh,will buy wedding accessories likebridal clutch bags,pins,necklaces,materials to make flowers n other materials worthy 70000ksh,the remaining amount will use to add more cupboard for the stocks.This will help increase my profit double becoz i style brides so will help the brides have everything in one place.
