Reine's story

Reine is a 30-year-old single Lebanese woman living alone. At one time she was in dire financial circumstances, but she worked hard and persevered to enhance her living conditions. In 2007, Reine started to work as a beautician, providing customers with high-quality beauty services at her house or at their locations. In 2011, she opened a clothing store, where she offers a wide variety of clothes at good prices.

This will be Reine's second Kiva loan, and she is very thankful for the results attained so far due to the previous loan. Today, she is requesting a youth loan from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l. to purchase beauty products and cosmetics so that she can improve her business operations and keep up with new fashions. Women continue to play an important role in Lebanese society. In almost all parts of Lebanon, demand for beauty and fashion products continues to be high, and that was the reason Reine chose these services.
