Edisa operates the Kuteesa Beauty Salon. She is 40 years old and is married with 2 children of her own and 2 orphans. She has managed to pay school fees and to send one of her daughters to the university, which is quite amazing.

She has been working as a beautician since she was 15. Her salon is located in a very rural setting and is the only one of its kind in the area. Though people do not have a lot of money, they do take great pride in their appearance and the salon is an important part of this care. She keeps her fees very reasonable to make sure everyone can afford her services.

Her dream is to slowly expand her business to meet the needs of her community. For now, she plans to use her loan to buy more cosmetics and pay school fees. She has been receiving loans for the past 10 years and has always paid on time.
