This is Amani, a 27-year-old engaged woman, resident of Lebanon. She has an adorable family composed of her parents and two lovely siblings. They are all combining forces to carry on their life in a proper way despite all circumstances. At this time she decided to have her own business, hoping to take some responsibilities off of her father, their main income provider. She’s a nurse, working from home and visiting customers from time to time. At the same time, Amani works at a local hospital to be able to supplement her income.

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 the needed nursing tools and supplies. This Kiva loan will also allow her to better serve her clients and thus improve her income by minimum of 20%. This is how she works every day to make her greatest dream a reality and have a bigger business.
