Mwanakame is a hairdresser who, through her work and sacrifice, has been able to get ahead and increase her income. She wants to continue her line of work and become an important small business owner.
Mwanakame is requesting a loan, which she will use to buy shampoo, cream rinse, hair color, and restorative hair treatments. These purchases will enable her to continue working and providing good customer service. Mwanakame hopes to open other outlets and hire employees in future even as she dreams of continuing to provide an education to her three children.
