This Kiva borrower is a 20-year-old Lebanese single woman living with one parent and one sibling. Despite her young age, she has been working for several years as a hairdresser. Her business is based at her house and she also serves customers at their domiciles. In parallel, she has worked in a beauty salon since 2007. Her work is very important because she helps her family in paying the high cost of living.

Today, she is requesting to borrow $1200 from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l. to purchase new hairdressing tools and supplies. In the future, she is planning to open a formal beauty salon in order to expand her business level.
