A loan of $4,900 helped a member purchase human and synthetic hair for extensions.


Massandjie's Group's story

Massandjie, a single mother of three, has owned her own beauty salon since 1999. She learned how to braid hair from family members in Africa and later went to school to obtain formal training. Her work has inspired many of her younger family members to pursue the profession.

She was successful with a small loan through ACCION USA to build her credit, and is now using a new loan to purchase more inventory. She specializes in hair braiding and extensions and plans to use her loan from ACCION USA to purchase more human and synthetic hair at wholesale, which she will sell to other salons for a higher profit.

Business is going well overall; there are expected ups and downs but Massandjie always perseveres. Like many entrepreneurs she works very hard and is always trying to grow and expand her business. She would even like to open a second location.
