Plans for implementation and sustainability
Looking at the high demand of hair products like weaves and wigs in Africa gives me energy to work towards opening a hair factory in Africa. This will be to reduce foreign currency and transport cost which African countries spent on importing products from far countries. Also Africans will receive quality hair products at affordable prices. Jay's hair is looking forward to work with major countries which supply row human hair. We are also looking forward to manufacture synthetic hair in Africa. We are currently working towards securing factory land and machinery through selling of hair products. This is also helping in marketing.
My name is Jane and am the founder of this idea. I can confirm that am well under 35 years of age. Am ready to provide my documents when asked to do so. Am an Agronomist by profession but an opportunity to further my studies in China opened up my eyes to the lying hair business in Africa. More than 1 year of learning from the feet of the Chinese hair factories gives me confidence in starting a hair mega factory in Africa as well as promoting online selling of the hair. As a student in China am also selling some of these hair products to people in my country there by strengthening customer relations. Hence, by the time our factory opens it will already have some clients.
