Mirna is a 30 year-old Lebanese married woman. She lives with her husband and two school-aged children. She cooperates with her husband in order to satisfy their needs and in order to be capable of living as they should be. In order to help him, she decided to start her own home business. She has been working as a clothes and makeup trader since 2009. She sells stylish, fashionable and trendy clothes. Today, she’s requesting to borrow a youth loan from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l to purchase a new collection of clothes such as dresses, scarves and pants in addition to makeup sets. She notes that this loan will certainly push her to get higher returns. In the future, she plans to open her own beauty salon very soon.
