Speaking to the Star, she set the record straight and said;

“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.

Regarding the location of her business, Betty said:

“I went to a few buildings around Kilimani and settled on FCB Mihrab because it was new, and I didn’t want one that had already been used. I fell in love with the building and I was like, that’s where I want my business to be. I also wanted a central place both for my staff and clients.”
