Juma lives in Likoni. He is married and has two school-aged children. He has managed a barber shop at the market for the past year. Juma started this business as a way of supporting himself since he did not have a job. He had taken beauty courses and then decided to open his own business, which has been very profitable. Today he has many established clients and walk-in customers.
The loan he is requesting will be used to buy equipment for his work such as scissors, combs, shaving creams, dryers, colognes, powders, razors, barber capes, and other items.
