Bahijeh, an 18-year-old Lebanese single woman, lives with her parents and two working siblings. Her father is the family's main source of income, and he is trying his best to be as helpful as he can.

Bahijeh started her home business as a beautician in 2009, and she also does body tattoos. With many loyal customers, she is happy with the business results that she has thus far attained. She is now requesting a loan of $1100 from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l to purchase new equipment for her business, including a chair so that her customers will feel relaxed and she will be able to work better.

In the future, Bahijeh plans to open her own beauty salon.
