Hiba is a 28-year-old married mother of two. She has been working in selling perfumes and accessories for a year and a half to help her husband. He works as a warehouse secretary and has a very low income that is not enough to cover their normal living expenses and their children's needs. The children don't attend school yet.

So Hiba is working hard to develop her business so it is capable of covering future school needs and expenses. She is acquiring a YOUTH loan from Kiva's partner Al Majmoua in order to increase her business capital with summer perfumes and a new accessories collection. This increase in her business capital will help her widen her working zone and attract new customers, which will increase her income.

She hopes that one day she will be capable of opening her own accessories and perfume selling shop.
