Betty Kyallo’s sister Mercy Kyallo has for the first time opened up after losing her job and how she started her leather business.
‘You came around for 4 weeks then disappeared,’ Mercy Kyallo exposes Dennis Okari after Mijungu’s post
In her YouTube channel, she said,
I had lost my job and on that fateful day I lost my job, I also packed my stuff and went home. I was depressed for two months.
Mercy, the CEO of Yallo leather revealed that she had made 23 bags, which she had stocked at a shop in Village Market but had only sold one by the time she was fired.
My salary used to sustain the business but after I lost my job, all that was gone.
She explained how she used to watch YouTube motivational speakers and it is from them she learnt something.
I DIDN’T WANT TO STAY HOME FOR ANOTHER MONTH and overwhelm my partner. I decided to call people, marketing my bags and it is from there I started selling one after another.
That paved a way for her in the flooded market and she currently sells her products online. Mercy gives credit to YouTube for helping her grow into a strong businesswoman.
Mercy Kyallo’s elder sister Betty, the CEO of lavish Flair by Betty salon in a past interview with the Star said that she took a loan and her savings to start the business.
NOT EASY STARTING A BUSINESS. FLAIR IS ONE OF THE HARDEST THINGS I HAVE EVER DONE. FOR ANY ENTREPRENEUR, FUNDS IS THE HARDEST THING IN THIS COUNTRY. I HAD MADE SOME SAVINGS WITH MY SACCO BUT IT WASN’T ENOUGH TO START FLAIR. I WENT TO MY BANK AND TOOK A LOAN AFTER WE AGREED ON HOW MUCH I WAS GOING TO PAY EVERY MONTH. I WANT TO ENCOURAGE ANYONE OUT THERE WITH A FANTASTIC IDEA NOT TO SIT ON IT BECAUSE OF LACK OF FUNDS, BUT VISIT THEIR BANKS AND APPLY FOR LOANS.
