Zeinab is a 26-year-old Lebanese single woman. She lives with her parents and three working siblings. The whole family is facing bad circumstances and living in unpleasant financial conditions. This is why Zeinab started to sell clothes and opened her own shop in 2008. She offers a great variety of clothes at fair prices.

This will be her third Kiva loan and she is very thankful for the results attained so far thanks to the previous loans. Today, she is requesting a youth loan from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l to purchase a new winter collection so that she can improve her business operations and follow up on the latest fashion. To better support her family, Zeinab wishes to open several branches as soon as possible.
