Business: Boutique and Salon
Location: Molo, Keep left
Years in Operation: 8 months
Amount needed: $100
Hildah Wamuyu is a budding entrepreneur based in Keep-left Bus park area of Molo town. She has been in business for the last eight months within which she has amassed a sizeable clientele enough to keep her optimism alive. She sells make-up, hair , face and body products as well as jewellery in her colorful boutique and runs a salon right behind it. Hildah has created employment for one gifted lady who works in her salon alongside herself.
Hildah is seeking $100 to increase the stock of her fastest moving goods: hair products, braids, weaves and hair extensions. These products go hand in hand with her salon business for her salon customers buy the products to use on their hair in her salon. She also serves clients within Keep-left bus park, Molo and its environs.
The funds she says will enable her to meet the demand for the products as well as attract all her salon customers who on previous occasions have gone to the salon with ready bought products from other beauty shops and boutiques. Besides the business, Hildah and her husband are also potato farmers. They however do not expect a bounty harvest this season, from their two acres farm, because of the prolonged rains that have been witnessed in Molo.
The success of her business is essential to the well being of her family. At the moment, the dotting mother of three school going children is able to cater for a few needs of her family, key among them food, with earnings from her business. Her business also meets its own expenses and costs of operations. In the nearest future, she envisions a more successful business that will enable her to combine her profits with her husband’s earnings to provide for all their basic needs as well as the school fees needs of her three school going children two of whom go to boarding schools.
