Layal is a 23-year-old Lebanese woman. She’s single, living with her parents. Her father is trying his best to offer them a suitable life. For this reason, Layal decided to start her own business in order to take some responsibilities off of her father. She opened her own perfumes and accessories shop in 2010. She has also been working as a private teacher for the past four years. Today, she requests a youth loan from Kiva partner, Ameen s.a.l, to purchase added products for her shop, such as perfumes and many other accessories. She notes that this will increase her sales, and thus her revenues. In the future, she plans to open other branches as soon as she can.
