A loan of $1,000 helped to invest in a new service.


Hamida's story

Hamida is a 26-year-old single woman, and she has been running a handicrafts and decorations business in her town for a year now. Despite her rough start, Hamida managed to build a good reputation among her customers.

In an effort to diversify her scope of work, Hamida is applying for a YOUTH LOAN from Kiva’s partner, Al Majmoua, which she will invest in a new service. She intends to start up an office to assist foreigners with their Lebanese residency applications. This offering will allow Hamida to generate more income and enhance her economic status as a financially independent woman.
