She requested a loan from the Kiva field partner, Al Majmoua, in order to purchase new makeup and to repair her car. Fadia doesn’t own her own shop and drives to her client’s homes. This is the first time that Fadia has requested a loan from Al Majmoua.
Fadia studied to be a beautician, so she already had experience when she first started her business, and she had no problems. In the future, she plans to keep expanding her business.
