Imad's story

Imad is a 25-year-old man who lives in Beirut, the capital of Lebanon. He has owned a hairdressing salon for almost two years. He also sells beauty products and does makeup, tattoos and hair removal. Imad is valued for his work because he knows how to treat his customers, and because he offers a lot of services. His clients feel comfortable going to his salon, knowing that he is good at his job and is aware of the new hair style fashions.


When Imad first started his business, he had no problems because he already had faithful customers from his previous job. He decided to open this business because he learned the skills in an academy and wanted to have independent work. His clients are his friends, neighbors and tourists.


He requested a loan from the Kiva field partner, Al Majmoua, in order to purchase beauty products and make some décor changes in his salon. This is the first time that Imad has requested a loan. In the future, he plans to expand his business.
