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

A loan helped to buy stocks of hair products and accessories for her beauty salon.

Comfort's story

For the past eight years, Comfort has been putting smiles on the faces of clients who visit her beauty salon. She does her utmost best to make them look extra beautiful with her rich skills. She also gives them value for their money. She is one of the best beauticians in her community in Ho, the capital of the Volta Region of Ghana.

As a way of making more revenue, Comfort sells hair and other beauty products in her salon. This is helping attract more customers, as others walk in only to buy products from her. She is thus seeking financial support to buy stocks of hair products – such as wigs, braids, etc. – for her salon.

She intends to use the profits from her business to care for her family, especially with nutrition. She is forty-three years of age and married, with four children.

Comfort appreciates the support from the Kiva community.
