At the farthest end of Molo’s main market, sits Veronica’s Salon. It is not easy to find it and for this reason, she is very dependent on her loyal customers remaining as loyal as they have been over the years as well as their referrals to new customers. The rest just stumble in and she is all too happy to welcome them and win them for many next visits. For the last five years, Veronica has passionately served her customers using her giftedness for their benefit. She is very open to new ideas and always listens to her customers.
She tries her best to keep herself abreast with new hair styles to remain relevant in the market. At any one point, Veronica never lacks at least two trainees under her tutelage. Time and again she has employed them temporarily upon satisfactory completion and mastery of the skills and art to get them set and enable them practice to gain experience before they venture out on their own. This she says has brought her so much fulfillment seeing women she herself train doing well in their own salons.
Besides her salon, Veronica is also a very dedicated farmer. She hires land periodically making sure she has space to till in every season. She grows maize and potatoes for sale as well as her own domestic consumption. Proceeds from her farming venture added to those from her Salon business enable her to pay for the education of her three school going children as well as fend for all of her family. She is glad and grateful to Moto Hope’s impact to the community for her children are getting quality yet very affordable holistic education from Moto Hope Academy and Moto Hope Micro Lending is about to boost her business with the $150 she is borrowing.
