    Colors, furniture, and little details for these brand new business owners

    Making it Personal

    Even if you have a room that holds your belongings, or where you spend lots of time, it doesn’t necessarily always feel like your own. Especially if you don’t have the personal touches that look and feel like you.

    Today, we’re finishing up a project with two Ugandans who had a dream of opening a spa together. Now that they had their space, it was time to make it personal.

    To help them make the shop really feel like their own, we helped them get paint and furniture, in addition to the beauty supplies we helped them shop for yesterday.

    The two new spa owners picked out the colors and items they liked best, and then designed a sign to be hung out front and attract customers.

    “Spending the day with and shopping these two individuals demonstrated the passion and vision they have for their new business,” said Jonah from the ARC team. “Seeing their salon in-progress made me incredibly excited for the beautiful space they are creating and for the empowerment that business ownership will hopefully bring to their lives.”
