She started to work from her home as a hairdresser and beautician three years ago. She has her loyal customers who believe in her fashionable and chic designs. Today, she’s in need of a youth loan from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l. to buy new cosmetic products such as nail polish, cotton, polish remover, and many hairdressing tools.

More information about this loan

This loan is helping support a borrower who is 30 or under. Because many young people lack business experience or established credit histories, it can be even more difficult for them to access financial services. By funding this youth loan, you are expanding opportunity for a young person with limited resources. 

Important Information

Due to political and social challenges in Lebanon, personally identifiable attributes entrepreneurs may have been altered to protect their privacy (i.e., blurring portions of the borrower's picture, not indicating a name and location, etc.).
