A dream, born out of the pandemic, has come true for 18-year-old Suhail Ahmad, who now owns a state-of-the-art barbershop in Nadi.

During this current health crisis, he has created eight jobs for two women and four men at Razor King Barbers located on the Main Street in Nadi Town.

After completing Year 12 at Nadi Muslim College in 2019, he strived in his passion for grooming people’s hair by enrolling in a six week-hairdressing course at Pivot Point in Lautoka.

His grandfather, Sher Mohammed said Mr Ahmad had completed the course and had gifted him the new business to manage.

“I always had dreamed of starting a business. I like to groom people’s hair and that has strived me to follow my dreams,” he said.

“People had lost their jobs during this pandemic, but I am glad that I was able to employ eight staff members. Now we’re able to support their families.

“There were six barbers and two were hairstylists and they were all experienced. I am planning to employ more staff as the business thrives,” he added.

Staff member, Sakaraia Vunisa, 25, who hails from Saqani, Caukaudrove, and is a sole breadwinner for his family, said he was blessed with the job opportunity to support his family in Vanua Levu.

“I came on a visit to Nadi this year and I am still stuck here due to the lockdown,” he said.

“It was a really difficult situation because I had no job to support my wife and kid back home in Vanua Levu.

“I am glad and blessed for this job opportunity that will be a source of income to support myself being here,” he added.
