Sarah is a 21-year-old Lebanese single woman living with her only parent and a working sibling. In addition to her brother, their main source of income, she also works hard to bring added income to the family. She has owned an accessories, bags and perfumes shop in her town since 2009, where all the ladies can benefit from her products. Today, she is asking for a youth loan from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l. to add extra items to her existing ones, such as perfumes, bags and many other things. She notes that this will return big profits. In the future, she plans to add clothes to her shop.
