Glory Be To God Group's story

Thirty-eight-year-old Rose personifies humility, ambition, prudence, and poise. There is a visage of discipline, organization, and focus amongst the people she has employed to work at her beauty salon in Jinja. Her philosophy and that of her workers is "one hand washes the other, and together they wash the face." Rose, a mother of six, has tried as much as possible, in the last eight years her salon has been in existence, to instill that precept in her workers. That is what has given her business strategic leverage. Eight years' experience in this business, where she offers mostly hairdressing services, has been worth every while, Rose says. Her proficient delivery of service to clients has been a calling card. The future prospects look good for Rose's business. This is the fourth time her group will receive a loan from Pearl. Weekly, her income totals 100,000 Ugandan shillings. Rose set forth in her business immediately after the completion of school. She also sells scrap metal to earn an extra buck. Rose says she intends to use her loan to purchase cosmetics for use at her salon, and the rest of the proceeds will go towards the purchase of a motorcycle.
