Denise's story

Denise has more than 20 years of accounting experience; she began her career working as a staff accountant for a tech firm, when she decided she wanted to attend cosmetology school.

Through her time in cosmetology school, Denise learned about hair products and hair care and then began purchasing hair extensions for herself. When she was purchasing, she realized that many people were not knowledgeable about the quality of the hair they were using and purchasing, including salon owners.

Denise decided to established Evinn’s Beauty and Hair Supply in July 2015. When Denise heard about the Accion Academy for Entrepreneurial Success, she decided it would be a good time to officially launch her business.

With her cosmetology experience, and her ability to travel to the various countries to ensure high-quality hair purchases, Denise has an advantage in the industry. She has decided to work as a consultant to educate people in the industry in the various types of hair and quality.

Denise will use the Kiva loan to purchase a variety of hair extensions to build up her inventory.

Denise will remain the only employee until the business grows enough to necessitate an additional sales associate. She dreams of one day owning her own salon where her clients could come to purchase hair and receive various beauty treatments.
