Hamidi is a 23-year-old single woman, who has been working as a tutor since 2010. Hamidi works from her house where she provides education help to three children since she started to work in order to cover her educational expenses.
It was hard for her at the beginning to manage between her own education and this business. Now she has gotten used to the parallel work and is more efficient in managing them.
Hamidi is working on expanding her available work area. She is applying for a YOUTH LOAN from Kiva's partner Al Majmoua in order to buy a car that will help her improve and expand her business, by providing education to students who can't come to her house that live in nearby villages.
Hamidi is planning to open a special teaching center where she can attract more students and expand her working area.
