About Me

I was born in Nakuru District and schooled here from primary to secondary school. After school, I was married and I have two lovely children who are all in school.

Currently, am running a salon business in Nakuru town, and also I complement it with cosmetics and women wares. I overcame this challenge of poverty through a mentorship program I went through, and I realized how important self-employment is to one's life. Through this mentorship program, we were taught how to start a business through SYB ( Start Your own Business) and, through these skills, I was able to get a small loan of Kshs. 10,000 to start a small salon business.

The unique thing about where I live is the social cohesiveness among neighbors, and this has really worked well and peace has really prevailed. My children want to follow my footsteps of self-employment. I like reading entrepreneurial materials that keeps me abreast with current business trends.

My Business

I supply cosmetics of all designs, women's and children's wears. I also do salon business. These goods and services are in demand due to the love women have towards themselves. Women follow fashions and I have found this to be interesting and fascinating. The demand is big and it's what I know best out of the skills I have developed for over ten years now.

My typical costs ranges from 10,000 and revenue far exceeds revenue outlay. On average, when business is not doing very well, at least I have something like Kshs. 7,000 for savings. First and foremost, for any business to do well, one has to pay himself/herself salary. So I pay myself a basic salary that caters for school fees, home improvements and the rest as savings goes to reinvestment in growing the business. Lastly, I prefer buying cash than going on debts. This has really helped me to propel the wheel.
