Since her first loan in 2010, she has invested over $5,000 in the business. Elizabeth paid out of pocket for specialty hair extensions for clients—a market gap yet to be filled. Elizabeth saved $3,500 during this time and hopes to continue to build savings and credit for future investment in a salon of her own.
