How She started.
Salome revealed in an interview that she left home after the disappointing exam results and got into the world of hustling. She started working in a friends boutique where she earned a small commission for every client she handled, but deep down she was teaching herself vital aspects of the business. After a while, Salome used the skills she had picked as well as her savings to start her small boutique in the estate. “A kindhearted landlord offered me rental space in Kipkaren where I paid just KSh 1,500 per month, that made it easy for me to break even faster,” she explained.
Later, she moved to Eldoret town as fate would have it, she met one of her friends who happened to be leaving the country for abroad and offered to let her take over the business she had been running in Eldoret town. To start she paid some money as goodwill, which was not a lot, then continued paying rent for the premises assuming to be a former tenant. It didn’t take her long after she took over the business, for her venture to pick up. That enabled her to open a second branch. Currently, she runs the two boutiques and has also invested in poultry farming where she supplies eggs in Eldoret on a wholesale basis. Salome now lives in her own house and has two cars as well as running her successful businesses. She is now a married woman blessed with two children and is expecting a third. “My firstborn is now aged 10 and in Class 4 while the second one is two years old,” Salome disclosed.
