E&M Ladies Smart Salon and Barbershop opened today, December 12, 2017, in Lilongwe, Malawi. This is a LifeNets livelihood development project that will serve a community and provide an income to the Mitimoni family whose chief breadwinner is unable to work because of health.
The salon will provide haircuts, hairstyling, and any related services. It is located in the LifeNets Business Center in Mchesi area in Lilongwe. It has potential to provide services in the neighborhood that may not otherwise be offered, especially considering the recent frequent power outages. The LifeNets Business Center is powered by solar.
Esther Mitimoni and her sister Miriam will operate the salon. Esther was previously assisted by LifeNets to obtain a certification for working in a salon.
