Lucine is a 27-year-old Lebanese single woman. She’s living with her parents and one working sibling. She’s the one taking care of the family and trying her best to cover all their needs.

Lucine started to work as a beautician from her home in 2007. She has her loyal customers who believe in her fashionable and stylish beauty designs.

Today, she’s asking for a youth loan from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l. to buy new cosmetic products such as nail polish, cotton, polish remover and many other items. This will increase her sales by 30%.

In the future, she plans to take more Kiva loans and open her own beauty salon.

More information about this loan

This loan is helping support a borrower who is 30 or under. Because many young people lack business experience or established credit histories, it can be even more difficult for them to access financial services. By funding this youth loan, you are expanding opportunity for a young person with limited resources.
