Emily Angela's story

Emily Angela is a businesswoman who runs her own beauty salon. She also sells different cosmetic products for women. Emily saw an opportunity in the beauty salon business because it is not common in the area - inside the Kakuma refugee camp. Emily is Kenyan but decided to work in the camp because she knew that most refugees did not have access to salons at an affordable price.

Emily has gained a number of loyal clients who visit her salon a couple of times each month. Emily is requesting a loan to purchase products as well as materials to help her provide quality services.

The value she gives other women to feel dignity in the midst of hardship is a beauty that is more than skin deep.
