Taghrid is a 23-year-old Lebanese single woman. In 2009, in order to help her family financially, she started to work as a beautician. She works on a freelance basis and she also visits customers at their domiciles to provide them with her talented beauty services.

Today, Taghrid is asking to borrow a youth loan from Kiva partner Vitas s.a.l. to purchase cosmetics and a machine designed for nail polish usage. She is well-known in her region and neighboring towns due to her good reputation. She is certain that with the new services that she will provide, she will be able to attract more customers and therefore increase her income.

In the future, Taghrid hopes to open her own beauty salon where she will receive her customers appropriately.
