A loan helped buy special hairdressing tools and requested beauty products to develop her home-based business, with the goal of opening a separate beauty salon in the future.


Israa's story

Israa is a 22-year-old, single Palestinian lady, who lives in a Palestinian refugee camp. In 2011, she started her own hairdressing business. She lives with her family, and she tries very hard to help them with their living expenses and cover all their needs.

She's applying for a loan from Kiva's field partner, Al Majmoua, in order to buy special hairdressing tools and requested beauty products to develop her home-based business, with the goal of opening a separate beauty salon in the future.

Israa will make sure to work harder and open her own separate beauty salon outside of her house soon.
