A loan helped to purchase additional food products for her business.


Ahlam's story

Greetings from an energetic woman named Ahlam! She is a 34-year-old married Lebanese woman who lives in an owned apartment in the Bekaa area with her husband and three children, ages 2-8.

Ahlam has run a business from her home for three years, selling different kinds of products including sweets, candies, raw materials and detergents. The business is doing well.

Ahlam is requesting a loan from Ibdaa, a Kiva partner, to purchase additional food products for her business. This will enable her to attract more clients, meet all their needs and thus increase her income. She is working hard, bringing much dedication and passion to her work.

Ahlam is an ambitious and humble woman, full of hope and good manners. She is an honest mother who has a marvelous reputation among customers in the area. She thanks you for your support!


This loan is special because:

It doesn’t require a guarantor, reaching underserved women in Lebanon.
