Bouchra's story

Bouchra is a 25-year-old single young Lebanese lady running her home-based business in makeup and hairdressing to help her family in covering their expenses and to maintain her own needs.

She always works on improving her business to reach more customers and increase her income.

For this reason, she is acquiring a loan from Kiva's field partner Al Majmoua to buy new makeup products and a hairdressing toolkit with hair dryers, scissors and different kinds of brushes and hair dyes.

The studious young lady wishes to have her own beauty salon in the future, and update it with all the advanced equipment, tools and products that will provide her with a sufficient income.
