A loan of $1,800 helped to purchase a modern tailoring machine.

Manale's story

This is Manale, a 31-year-old married woman who is a resident of Lebanon. With an adorable family of three school-aged children and a husband, she decided to carry on her life despite all circumstances. At this time, she's cooperating with her husband expecting a better and brighter future for her children.

Because her house is located in a strategic spot, Manale decided to start her own business as a tailor four years ago. She works with high professionalism which makes her attract additional clients. We admit that Manale is a brave young woman, although her husband's support is the reason she has attained with her children what they have right now. He's an employee at the CFC, a resident company located on the other side of their town.

As Manale wants to better develop her business and improve her work as well, she decided to take a loan from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l. to purchase a modern tailoring machine which can speed up her work and make it much easier. This Kiva loan will also allow her to offer a greater quality of products and thus improve her income by at least 20%. This is how she works every day to make her greatest dream a reality and have a bigger business.
