Rabaa's story

Rabaa is 31 years old. She is married to a plumber and has five children, aged 4-13. She lives in Umm Tuba, in southeast Jerusalem. Rabaa has studied facial treatments and has a certificate recognized by the health ministry. She has also received business training from MATI (the training partner of the Jerusalem Interest-free Microfinance Fund, JIMF). With the help of Kiva and JIMF, Rabaa established a beauty salon in the neighborhood a few years ago. That loan has been repaid. She now wishes to purchase a laser hair removal machine, which will cost NIS 20,000. She seeks funding of NIS 18,000. Rabaa has protective equipment to enable her to operate whilst minimizing Covid-19 risks. She aims with this investment to strengthen her enterprise and to enhance her family’s income.
