Hanan is a 21-year-old single lady who has worked in selling clothes since a year ago. Her business is going just fine but she needs an external financial push to support it and diversify its products to respond better to customers' needs.

Hanan is applying for a youth loan from Kiva's partner Al Majmoua in order to start new perfumes and accessories selling sectors. These additional sectors will attract her customers' attention and increase her income.

At the beginning she had problems while starting her business because she wasn't capable of finding a shop at the main road to attract foreign customers, but since a year ago her number of customers has been increasing because of her customer service and special reputation in her region.

She hopes to open in the future separate perfumes and accessories specialized shops and develop her business more and more in her region and the neighboring ones.
