This is Hauda, 45 years old. She’s a Lebanese divorced woman living with her five children, four of whom are working and the other is still attending school. Despite all the bad things that she has gone through, Hauda was ready to start her own business to take on the responsibility of her family. She has owned a crafts and accessories shop since 2010. And because she is a very friendly person, she has gained a fair number of customers so far. Today, in order to increase her sales, she decided to take a loan from Kiva Partner Vitas s.a.l to purchase tools and supplies with added related accessories. She notes that this will definitely allow her to earn a superior income and therefore cover the family expenses. She is really ambitious and looks forward to better improve her business and grow in this occupation.
