She started her work as a female hairdresser five years ago. She receives clients at her home and she also serves them at their houses. She works hard because she is the only income source of the family. Today, she is requesting to borrow $1,200 from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l. to rent a small salon and refurbish it in order to welcome customers properly.
