Asmahan's story

Asmahan is a 47-year-old married Lebanese woman living with her husband and three children. Her husband works to support the family while the children attend school.


Since 2005 Asmahan has owned a gifts and crafts shop where customers can buy her products at a fair price. Today she would like a 2,250,000 LBP loan from Kiva’s partner Ameen s.a.l to buy additional merchandise for her shop before the holidays. She notes that this should result in bigger profits.


Asmahan’s ambition is to open other branches of her shop in nearby areas.
