Manjola's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to open her own small beauty shop salon for a member from the vulnerable Egyptian community so she will be able to fulfill her dream.

Manjola's story

Manjola is a young member from the vulnerable Egyptian community who is hoping for the first time for Kiva lender support to open her own small beauty shop salon. "I have lived for some years in Italy where I had the chance to work in a beauty salon and also got the chance to be certified by an international school. When I came back to Albania, together with my family, and started looking for a job in a beauty salon I realized that the salary here for this position is very low, while you have to be present most of the day at work. I have two little daughters, aged 8 and 1 year old who need my presence time after time so it is quite impossible for me to join such a job. For this I hope I can have your support to be able to open my own beauty shop, where I will have a more flexible time schedule and will finally be able to fulfill my dream!" said Manjola during the interview.

Manjola lives only with her two daughters in Elbasan city in a small apartment. Her husband is currently working in Italy and is a great support for Manjola for her plans.
