Salwa's story

Salwa is a 62-year-old widow. Two years ago she opened a small cosmetics and accessories shop to spend her free time and make her own living.

Salwa used to be a school manager, but she retired at the age of 60. She couldn't imagine herself without work, so she opened her own small business. Salwa is a hardworking woman. She was responsible of raising her daughter since her husband passed away. She did quite a good job.

To improve her business, Salwa applied for a loan from Kiva partner Al Majmoua in order to increase her business capital with special accessories, cosmetics and perfumes. Salwa is very sure that this loan will help in fulfilling her customers' needs and desires.

She hopes to stay in good health and to continue making a living without asking for others' help.
