Zeinab is a 25-year-old married woman and a mother of two children. She has been working in the beauty business for six years. Zeinab specializes in tattoos and make-up. She doesn't have her own beauty salon – rather she works by appointment in her friends' hairdressing shops.
Zeinab feels that it's almost time to settle down and improve her business, since she now has a good number of customers who trust and deal with her.
Today, Zeinab is applying for a youth loan from Kiva partner Al Majmoua in order to open her own beauty salon. The loan will help to furnish the salon and buy the necessary tools and machines to start a new business.
Zeinab is sure that she will succeed because of her talent and her customers' loyalty.
