Byona Biyinzika Savings Group D's story

Norah, 32 years old has been in the beauty salon business for the past seven years. The mother of three plies her business in Kampala. Beauty salons in Kampala do great business, mostly on the weekends. Most of these salons depend on word of mouth public relations. The majority of the salon owners tend as much as possible to get into the good graces of their clients. This, without a shadow of a doubt, impacts significantly on the businesses. These salons are in most cases frequented by women who are inclined to stay in vogue. Most of the salon owners invariably want to be at the beck and call of their clients. Entrepreneurs like Norah have banked on stocks in trade similar to the aforementioned. Norah says she set forth in her business with a friend's prevail upon influence. Her weekly gross income totals Uganda shillings 130,000. She intends to use this Kiva loan to purchase better cosmetics and other salon equipment to use at her beauty salon.
