A loan helped to buy new set of perfumes and accessories to meet customers' demands.


Mariam's story

Meet a humble lady named Mariam! She is 25 years old, a Lebanese single girl who lives with her parents in an owned apartment located in South of Lebanon. She established her own business eight years ago in a rented store to pay for the house expenses due to the sickness of her dad. She started selling perfumes and accessories to improve her standard of living.

For the first time, Mariam is asking for a loan from IBDAA, a Kiva partner. She requested this loan to purchase a new set of perfumes and accessories to meet customers' demands and gain large profits. She plans to expand her business gradually in the future to improve her financial status.

Mariam is an ambitious and energetic lady full of hope and good manners. She is a loyal daughter who has a splendid reputation in the area among customers and neighbors.
