Aida is a 22 year old Lebanese single woman living with her mother and two siblings. Her mother is the one covering the family expenses after living in unpleasant financial conditions. Her youngest sibling is also seeking to supplement their income and therefore enhance their way of living. This was the same reason of why Aida started to work as a beautician. She works from home and also visits customers wherever they are located. In parallel, she has been working as a sales woman at one of the local clothing shops. Today, she is requesting a youth loan from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l to purchase beauty products and cosmetics so that she can improve her business operations and follow up on the new fashion. Aida looks forward to open her own beauty salon, better support her family and definitely get married and have her own family with children.
