Debra's loan finished fundraising, but these other borrowers need your support

A loan helped fund the purchase of salon equipment such as chairs, sinks, dryers and trolleys for my second location.

Debra's story

I grew up in South San Francisco raised by a single mother. At the age of 10 years old, my cousin taught me how to braid hair. By the time I was 13 years old I began taking clients, charging anywhere from $10 to $20. I continued this path until 1999 while working full-time jobs. In 1999 I decided to quit working and pursue my dreams. I enrolled in cosmetology school and began working at a salon. After a couple of years of working in other salons I decided to open Handz Natural Hair Designs. Now after 13 years I'm ready to expand and open a second location to help others pursue their dreams in the beauty industry.
