A loan helped to purchase weaves, braids, hair sprays and lotions.

Josephine's story

Josephine is 31 years old, married and blessed with one child who is below the age of 18 years. She operates a beauty salon and has been in the business for the past five years earning an average of KES 25,000 per month.

She has applied for her first loan from Vision Fund Kenya to buy weaves, braids, sprays and hair lotions. With the anticipated profits she intends to pay school fees for her child and repay her loan in good time.

Her dream and hope for the future is to open another salon so as to live a comfortable life.
