Lydia's story

Lydia was born in the Kariobangi slums in Nairobi.Although she grew up in the slum her parents did their best to provide them with basic necesities in life including education.She was able to attend school upto the fourth level,although she did not perform well in her secondary education.That poor performance could not take her to college and so she opted to use the only talent she had to start a business,and that is plaiting hair untill todate.She later opened her own Saloon business and that is her current business.She is now married with five children.Her husband repairs radios. Her dream is to open up a bigger saloon and be a successful entreprenuer. She has always ventured in her Saloon business since she left high school and that is her story. that demonstates her entreprenueral spirit.
