Sabah is a 47-year-old married mother of three children who has been working as a hairdresser and a makeup artist for the past ten years. Sabah works from her house because she isn't currently financially capable of establishing her own beauty salon. She prefers to keep her business at home or to provide her services at her customers' homes upon their requests so that she can provide the necessary care to her beloved children.

Today she is acquiring a loan from Kiva partner Al Majmoua to buy a special tattoo machine and special beauty products that will help her develop her business and attract more customers. This will also enable her to respond to almost all of her customers' needs.

She hopes that through this loan she will increase her income. She also hopes to be able to establish her own beauty salon outside her house in the near future, which she will develop to cover almost all of women's beauty needs.
