A loan helped to purchase another hair drier and hair relaxers.


Phiona's story

Phiona owns a salon in Rippon, and this is her main source of income. She supports her two sisters and her mother financially with income from her business.

Phionah is grateful to Kiva funders for the previous support she received, and she says she has continued to be a hardworking woman, working with as many customers as she can to raise more income.

With the current rising costs, Phionah is hard pressed as her business has slowed down. Therefore she requested another loan to facilitate the purchase of another hair drier and hair relaxers that will help her to work on more than two clients at one time. This will be helpful with the festive season around the corner when she will have a larger number of customers.

She hopes the acquisition of another drier will increase her income, and thus lead to an improved standard of living.

Phionah is appreciative of the continuous support from UGAFODE and Kiva funders.
