Business: Hair Salon.
Location: Molo Town.
Years in Operation: 10 Years.
Amount needed: $150.
The well lit small room that is Peris’ hair salon is busy with Peris and her employees going about their business. They animatedly tend to their clients hands at work while chatting and laughing all the while. Customers feel at home in this welcoming and pleasant environment and Peris is out to please.
The business rental units housing problems that Peris has faced over the ten years have done nothing to damped her spirits. She has moved five times from one area to another in search of the most strategic and functional setting. Despite this, wherever she settles, her customers move with her. She makes sure to alert them of any move to avoid losing them to her competitors.
She is a very gifted hair dresser and purposes to pass the skill to the younger generation. At any given time, she always has trainees under her tutelage. She is currently training 2 young ladies and has created employment for 3 others. She maintains her clients and wins over new ones through quality work, affordable pricing and good relations. The business enables her to pay the school fees of her two school going children, rent, bills and all household needs.
She is seeking $150 from Moto Hope Micro Lending to enable her to pay for this year’s business license. Some of the money will also go towards purchasing more hair products stock that she sells at her salon especially hair braid and extensions, and also hair processing chemicals. This will increase efficiency besides improving earnings through sale of the products in addition to the earnings from hairdressing.
