Selamiye's story

Selamiye is a 49-year-old woman. Due to her father's illness, she did not get married because she had to take care of the household. She started working as an apprentice at a hairdresser at a young age to help her family and take care of her siblings. She is a hardworking woman who also managed to complete her education.

She worked in a hair salon until she was 18 years old. After she received her qualification certificates, Selamiye wanted to open her own hair salon. Although her parents were against it at first, they supported her when they saw that their daughter was very determined. But due to financial difficulties, she continued to do her business in a room at home for a while.

To open her dream hair salon, Selamiye received a microcredit via TGMP and opened hair salon. Always looking for ways to improve herself, she received training to work as an esthetician, beauty specialist, and wedding dress tailor.

She is planning to use her Kiva loan to open a wedding dress store.
