$3,000 small business loan
Total Image Salon is owned by LaToya Johnson who has many years of experience, especially in styling the hair of African Americans. She is also a licensed cosmetologist, who is certified as a test evaluator for those students who are hoping to become barbers or beauticians. She runs a full-service salon and will occasionally make house calls for elderly clients who are unable to travel from their homes.
The loan from the Rising Tide Community Loan Fund provided working capital so LaToya could get her new business up and running.
