Safaa is a 30-year-old married woman, living with her husband and five children in Dahieh. She helps her husband with their family's income and expenses, because children request a lot of care and have needs to provide for.

Safaa started working in 2006. She works at her house as a hairdresser and makeup artist. She is willing to start selling cosmetics, and that's why she requested a loan from A. Majmoua this time. Her previous loan was to buy new machines and tools for her business, and that eased her work a lot. Her customers can afford her prices and she's going to trade with requested materials so that she won't be stuck with merchandise that is hard to sell. She is also going to buy a bed and an oven she really needs.

She hopes to expand her business and open a small beauty salon outside her house. She said that she hopes one day she can save enough money to take this step.
