A loan of $1,000 helped a member to buy hair extensions and weaves for her hairdressing activity.

Association Coiffeuse Kl N° 2 Group's story

The group "Association des Coiffeuses de KI n°2" comprises five women who are all involved in the same activity: hairdressing. They have come together to receive financial support from the UIMCEC and they are on their second loan.

Adama, the group's leader, is married and has a family. She will buy hair extensions and weaves so that her customers will not longer have to go elsewhere to buy a product which they can find locally.

Adama contributes to the family's daily expenses. Her dream is to open a large studio where she could earn some money offering training courses for future hairdressers.

In this group: Adama , Fatou Barra, Codou , Sokhna, Fatou
