Chong Cha Wheat's story is familiar to thousands of entrepreneurs. She used to work in a beauty supply store and came to the conclusion that she could own one of her own.

Originally, Wheat hoped to buy her former employer's store. While that deal didn't work out, the disappointment fueled her determination to become her own boss.

With $20,000 that included savings from her husband's years of truck driving and loans from family members, Wheat has been able to give Kim's Beauty Supply a decent start.

In addition to the typical beauty supply fare, Kim's has a variety of wigs and hair extensions. As her business builds, Wheat plans to expand her offerings by including full makeup and fragrance lines.

With her sister-in-law as her only help, Wheat knows that the hours will be long, but she is confident that her new business will be able to satisfy the beauty needs of central Arkansas.
