Hamidu's beauty salon enterprise has been in existence for 2 years. It is a business that generates a monthly income of UGX 420,000 and whose prospects for growth are looking rosy, month in and month out.
Hamidu's business has one major advantage in that there are few competitors in his area of operation. He blazed a trail setting up this genre of business in one of the most rural areas in Bushenyi. Hamidu is aware that he needs to pull out all the stops to carve out a niche and to obtain a firm footing in this type of business. He is cognizant that he needs to reequip his salon since his services, principally the plaiting, is becoming quite popular with clients. Hamidu intends to use this loan to purchase more salon equipment, wigs, weaves, cosmetics, etc. to use in his beauty salon.
On the side, Hamidu also earns income from a coffee and banana sales business.
