A loan of $400 helped to purchase a blow drying machine for her salon.


Grace Makonjo's story

Grace is married to Festus. They have three children: Mathew (22 years old), Hellen (18) and Maureen (13).

Grace has been in the beauty salon business for six years. She was introduced to Kiva partner KADET through existing clients, and has no previous credit history. She services the residents of the estate where the salon is located.

Grace will use her loan to purchase a blow dryer for her salon. With the extra profits she earns as a result of having this equipment and therefore drawing more customers in, Grace plans to educate her children. In the future, Grace hopes to have a salon with all the necessary equipment and chemicals. She believes she is determined and focused.
