A loan of $2,000 helped to purchase new makeup and to repair her car.

Fadia's story

Fadia is a 36-year-old divorced woman who lives with her child in Beirut, the capital of Lebanon. Fadia has been working as a make-up artist since 1994. Her clients are her friends and neighbors.

She is a very dynamic and active person and she works very hard in order to make her living, but more importantly she likes her work. Sometimes, especially during festive seasons, she works late in order to be available for her clients.

She requested a loan from the Kiva field partner, Al Majmoua, in order to purchase new makeup and to repair her car. Fadia doesn’t own her own shop and drives to her client’s homes. This is the first time that Fadia has requested a loan from Al Majmoua.

Fadia studied to be a beautician, so she already had experience when she first started her business, and she had no problems. In the future, she plans to keep expanding her business.
