Beauty Paradise is a popular hair salon offering hairdressing
and beauty services. Prior to the Trade Relief loan they were operating the training school underneath a veranda on the main road in Jinja but the loan has enabled them to relocate inside to a their own permanent premises and acquire the necessary equipment. The loan enabled the training department to grow into a fully-fledged school, The Golden Scissors Styling Academy, that has created two new jobs. In addition, the business has offered scholarships to AIDS orphans and other students from marginalised backgrounds to a tune of UGX 6,300,000 (£1,575)
