There is also a package of children aged 4-12 years which includes; manicure, gel, polish and pedicure,” uttered the team.
What makes the company unique is the products they use for facials, one of them is Kalahari which is not found in the country. “Some people used to travel out of the country for luxurious facial treatment, it came to our realization to introduce those services in Lesotho and prevent people from travelling afar”, Meraki Lesotho explained.
There is no escaping the fact that the rate of unemployment in Lesotho is high and increases on a daily, Meraki Lesotho has contributed in the economic growth and curbing of unemployment faced by the country by hiring four qualified Basotho women in their respective fields.

Speaking of how the company acquires its clientele, she gave utterance to the fact that partnering with Finite Lifestyle club has brought them new business and helped retain old business. The marketing aspect is astonishing, since the two companies came into partnership we have been provided with free advertising space to showcase our products as well as services when they host events, in their magazine as well as newspaper.
Enjoy benefits such as a free copy of finite magazine, discounts at business partner outlets such as salons, grocery shops, hardware’s and many more. “Join Finite Lifestyle club and get up to 10-15% discount”, she explained. Isn’t it exciting? They also promote their services through business flyers and social media.
The company encounters lots of challenges but does not shy away from them, instead faces them head-on. The spa operates strictly on appointment basis, no walk-ins allowed. This can also be a downfall for the business as people do not always keep time, one customer’s delay can temper with the whole schedule of the day. Cancellation policy makes a provision of a 15 minutes delay anything beyond that the appointment deems cancelled.
