John's story

John is 37 years old. He is single, ambitious, and an entrepreneur willing to succeed. For the last seven years, he has been running a salon to make ends meet. He wants in the next five years to have opened up another beauty point to increase his income. He is requesting a loan of 20,000 Kenya shillings to buy a blow dryer, hair chemicals and hair braids. He is grateful to Faulu Kenya for making funds to use in his business more accessible.
