A loan of $3,150 helped a member to buy cosmetics and salon products.


Wantoni Development Group's story

27-year-old Falida speaks in high terms of her beauty salon business in Mukono town, which she has been overseeing for the last 8 years. Going by the accounts of many of her close associates and friends, Falida is one lady with an aura of friendliness. That character trait has come in handy many times as she goes about her business in her salon. Her happy-go-lucky disposition has endeared her to many of her old and new clients alike. She says that in her type of business, being good natured, humorous and easy-going are invaluable stocks in trade. In the past 8 years she has come to terms with that fact. Falida knows where her advantage is and she says with prayers, unwavering hard work and persistence, she has success within her grasp.

Falida says she makes approximately 120,000 Ugandan shillings in weekly profits. With this Kiva loan, she says she is going to purchase more cosmetics and other salon products for use in her salon.
