Rosemary's story

Rosemary is a married lady aged 45 years, living in Nyahururu with her family. She is a mother who is a hairdresser by profession and her husband is a skilled carpenter. They both support the family.

Rosemary is a very hardworking lady, as she is well known. She always wakes up early to serve her clients in her beauty salon. She braids her clients hair, does manicure, pedicure and facial services. She likes her job since it gives her income that caters for her family's needs. Her challenge has been having little products to serve her clients due to low capital.

With a Kiva loan, Rosemary will add stock of hair chemicals, shampoo, treatments and other newer brands that will boost her business. She will use the profit to pay her loan and expand her business further. She gives services that make her clients feel presentable and decent. Since she likes enriching people's lives, she employs other hairdressers to assist in her beauty salon.

Rosemary has a history of repaying her loans well and this is the third loan that she is taking, after repaying the previous two on time. Her dream is to grow her business and invest.
