Peter is a 25-year-old hardworking man living in Kyenjojo,Uganda. He ventured into the beauty salon business which is shunned by most men as they think it is work for women. But Peter says he has reaped a lot of profits from the service. With the income earned, he has been able to pay school fees for his young brothers and sisters. Peter started this business after dropping out of school because he was unable to pay school fees. He then started trading in maize which helped him get capital for the salon. He has a problem of inadequate capital to buy wholesale. He has personal goal of building his residential house and expanding his business into new market areas. Peter is requesting for a loan to buy a hair drying machine.
