AFTER struggling to find a job for over four years, and suffering from depression as a result, Kalina Moodley decided to start a nail salon for the Greytown community in December last year.

Moodley is now the owner and founder of Butterfly Angels, which is a full-service salon that offers services ranging from massages, waxing, facials and more.

“I was diagnosed with cancer, and unfortunately I couldn’t get a job. I was sinking into depression, so I decided to do something.

“The idea to start this business was an overnight plan. I realised that Greytown doesn’t have many nail businesses, so I grabbed the opportunity with both hands because I knew I was good with my hands when it comes to body massages,” said Moodley, who grew up in Greytown and matriculated from Greytown Secondary in 2012.

Moodley furthered her studies in psychology at Unisa.

“I graduated from Unisa in 2018. After I graduated I was unable to get a job.

“My biggest goal is to offer unique services to the community of Greytown.

“My mother is my source of inspiration because she has been with me from the beginning and supported my ideas,” said Moodley.

The entrepreneur is optimistic that her new business will grow and generate more income.

“In the future I want to do more in a better place. I dream of lifting myself up and getting better,” she said.

The entrepreneur also enjoys being a motivational speaker.

“When I happen to be around people in hospitals, I motivate the patients and encourage them — telling them that being in hospital does not mean the end of the world. I always tell them that there is sunshine after the storm,” she said.
