A loan of $500 helped to purchase more hair extensions and salon equipment.


Gloria's story

Gloria is a 21 year-old mother of one living in the Lupane District of Zimbabwe. She operates a hair salon where she braids and plaits hair. She also sells hair extensions and other hair products.

Gloria is also a Camfed volunteer working as a health activist disseminating health information to students at her local school and within her community.

With the requested loan, Gloria would like to purchase hair extensions and the products and equipment needed to make her job faster and more efficient, such as hair blowers and dryers. This would attract more clients to her salon and her profits would also increase.

With the additional profits, Gloria would like to further her education and train as a primary school teacher.
