Click here to donate yourself A hair salon is much more than just a place where hair is cut. It is a place where self-esteem can be improved, where self-love can be inspired, where people can walk in feeling like one person and leave feeling like another. Yakaira works to give others these services and more. Originally from the Dominican Republic, Yakaira currently lives with her children, whom she supports with her business. As an independent entrepreneur, she has owned her own beauty and hair salon for over eight months. However, in order to meet the increasing needs of her clients, she must expand her workplace. The purpose of this loan is to repurpose the basement of her beauty and hair salon to provide more space to assist customers. It will allow her not only to support herself and her children, but also to give the self-confident happiness that only a great hairstylist can help others achieve.
