Amena's story

Amena is a 33-year-old married mother of two children, who strives with her husband to cover their family expenses through running her own business selling cosmetics and perfumes for two years.

Due to her limited income, she is acquiring a loan from Kiva's field partner Al Majmoua to pay for her children's school tuition fees. They are in grades four and nine.

Amena wishes her children a successful future and hopes to develop her business continuously to achieve her children's ambitions.
