Rose (shown standing attending to a client) is the proprietor of Beverly Hills Salon based in the Nyalenda slums in Kisumu, Kenya. She started her salon in 1997 from her small savings. The salon is located in a densely populated area on the way to Dunga beach. Rose lives with her husband and one school-going child.
Rose has applied for US $500 to enable her to renovate the salon which is in bad shape and also to purchase cosmetics and a hair drier.
