Hiyam's story

Hiyam is a 55-year-old Lebanese widowed woman living with her only child and three siblings. She has been working as a cook since 2010. Her job is to prepare and cook food in her home then sell it to customers. Today, she is requesting to borrow $700 from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l. to purchase a new oven. She needs to increase her productivity before the winter season as her business sales increase during that period. In the future, she would like to rent out a small space to sell her merchandise. For the time being, she will continue to sell goods from her home.
