This is Nada, a 24-year-old married woman and resident of Lebanon. With an adorable family of one child and a husband, she decided to carry on her life despite all circumstances. At this time, she’s cooperating with her husband, expecting a better and shiny future for her child.

Because of her house’s strategic spot, Nada decided to start her own business as a tailor. She works with high professionalism that makes her attract added clients. Her husband is an employee at a local company. She also works in parallel at a nursery.

And as she wants to better develop her business and improve her work as well, she decided to take a youth loan from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l. to purchase a modern tailoring machine that can speed up her work and make it much easier. This Kiva loan will also allow her to offer a greater quality of products and thus improve her income by a minimum of 20 percent. This is how she works every day to make her greatest dream a reality and have a bigger business.
