A loan of $3,000 helped to renovate her salon and buy an air conditioner and a small generator.


Pana's story

Pana is a young Iraqi woman. She is 21 years old and as a yet-unmarried woman, she is living with her family. At her home, a nice area has been separated off for her to use as a beauty salon.

She has three years of experience working as a hairdresser and would like to use the salon to its full potential, giving her customers good service and a great experience when they visit her. She would like to renew the shop as it is a little run down already and as part of the renovation works she would like to install an A/C unit, buy a small generator and purchase some quality raw materials to use in the salon.

To be able to make these improvements and purchases, she qualified for a small business loan from Relief International Microfinance Iraq for 3,000 USD.

Pana is under 30 years old and qualifies for a 'youth loan'.
