After her education, she opened her studio in 2000, and has 4 employees to assist her. She is requesting her first loan from WAGES in order to buy hair extensions and pagnes (highly colourful and decorative West African clothing). Her plans for the future include owning a large studio and doing her best to ensure a better future for her family.
