In 2002, Hanaa started a cosmetics & perfumes trading business in her house. It has improved since she started with the help of a loan she got from Kiva partner, Al Majmoua. Her previous loan had a positive impact, and that's why she is applying for another one.
She will invest in her business by buying new autumn-winter cosmetics & perfumes collections. She believes that the new collections will be sold quickly because of the Holy Christmas & New Year's season.
Hanaa is a hard worker. She hopes to open a big shop in the future, and to add clothes to her trade.
