Aya's loan finished fundraising, but these other borrowers need your support

A loan helped to buy equipment for her business such as chairs and sinks.

Aya's story

Through running her own business in makeup and hairdressing, Aya can maintain the living needs of her children after her divorce. She is a 32-year-old Palestinian mother of three children who is taking a good care of them, overcoming all her social and financial difficulties.

After her previous loan had helped her in supplying her business, she is acquiring again a loan from Kiva's field partner Al Majmoua. She wants to buy equipment for her business such as chairs and sinks.

The striving independent mother wishes to expand her business and open her own beauty center in the future to be very reputable in her domain.
