A loan of $3,125 helped a member the purchase of weavers and driers for her salon.

Agali Awamu Kikajjo Group-Kampala's story

The long and short term odds for success in most new businesses are dependent on many factors, but for 26-year-old M. Erid those odds have been improved because of a wealth of confidence, good blueprint planning and lots of good will from close friends. These factors have helped her to break new ground in her six-year-old beauty salon business in Namasuba-Kampala.

She has been unrelentingly hard-working over the course of these years, and her husband has also been at her beck and call. This has helped her a great deal. Erid and her husband have one child. Her customers range from old to young women who reside in Namasuba - a growing suburban area in its own right.

Erid says she will be empowered by this loan to buy weavers and driers for her salon. She says this will be a springboard for making more profits for her business, as her workers will be able to expedite the work that they do.
