TV sexy siren Betty Kyallo has finally opened up about how she got funds to start her high-end salon, Flair by Betty amidst rumours that she was sponsored by a top government official.
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.”

Betty KYallo also revealed that she has learnt a lot in the business industry and advised young entrepreneurs not to sit on ideas if they have any but go ahead and start something.
“What I have learnt about my entrepreneur journey is you have to take small bits of this thing. I believe in starting small and growing organically, and then we see where the brand goes,” she said.
