Like many business people in the country, media personality Betty Kyallo has not been spared from dwindling cashflows.
The former KTN news anchor says the COVID-19 pandemic has affected her beauty parlor business.
“I will not want to say that I am doing very well. Truth be told it has been a rough couple of months for many entrepreneurs,” the Flair by Betty CEO said.
“I have struggled just like other entrepreneurs because the business environment has not been very friendly to small-scale businesses.”

“People just don’t have money to spend, especially on luxurious services like micro-blading…what we do at the salon,” she said.
