Zahraa is a 22-year-old married Lebanese woman. She lives with her husband and her school-aged child. Her husband is an electrician, but after their marriage and the birth of their child, Zahraa and her husband find it really hard to cover their costs. They’re now working together to earn a better income.

Zahraa started to work as a beautician from her home in 2007 and has developed a loyal clientele. Today she is requesting a 3,000,000 LBP youth loan from Kiva’s partner Ameen s.a.l to buy additional beauty products and a salon chair. These purchases will help her boost her business and make more money.

Zahraa’s ambition is to open her own beauty salon.
