When Imad first started his business, he had no problems because he already had faithful customers from his previous job. He decided to open this business because he learned the skills in an academy and wanted to have independent work. His clients are his friends, neighbors and tourists.
He requested a loan from the Kiva field partner, Al Majmoua, in order to purchase beauty products and make some décor changes in his salon. This is the first time that Imad has requested a loan. In the future, he plans to expand his business.
