Sawsan is applying for a loan from Kiva partner, Al Majmoua, to update her business with newly released beauty items. She will also invest part of this loan to support her husband's business through buying special car spare parts that will increase his business income.
This is Sawsan's first experience as an Al Majmoua borrower. She hopes that future loans might help her in establishing her own separate beauty salon to expand her working zone and attract more customers.
