My father rejected me when I was young, I got pregnant at Form 2 and got D (Plain) in KCSE, but these mishaps did not prevent me from becoming a successful entrepreneur. This is the story of 27-year-old Salome Kipkemoi who now lives in her own house, has two cars and runs successful businesses.
“Nilikuwa nafanya kazi kwa salon nikisave. Nikampata mzee fulani nikamweleza ningependa kuanza ungependa kuanza salon lakini sina pesa. Akanipea nyumba pale Kipkaren na akaniambia nilipe KSh 1,500 kila mwezi, pesa iliyokuwa chini ya rent yake ya kawaida. Hivyo ndivyo nilianzisha biashara yangu. Baadaye, nilifungua salon nyingine Eldoret town inaitwa Destiny salon.”
“Ninawashauri msave kwa ile kidogo mnapata. Mtafanikiwa,” Salome told Kenya alert
