She also sells products to improve her customers' looks. She started her business three years ago after finishing beauty school. Her parents supported her decision to start her own business venture in order to generate an income.

Her goal is for her business to grow, so after consulting with her customers she is requesting a Kiva loan in order to purchase the beauty supplies that they want. She will also buy hair products to be used at her beauty salon. Her greatest potential lies in her work ethic and the effective quality of her work, as well as her physical location, which is surrounded by social and sporting event sites. This boosts her customer base and is precisely the reason why her investment has been successful.
