Abir is a 26-year-old married woman, the mother of three children. A year ago, Abir started selling Brazilian gold and accessories to help her husband in covering their family's expenses as much as they can.

She works hard to provide the best living ever to her children, so that they don't feel that they need something that they can't afford. Abir's most important aim is to provide the best education ever to her children.

Abir applied for a YOUTH LOAN from Kiva's partner Al Majmoua for the first time, in order to increase her business capital to purchase a newly released jewelry collection. The sales will improve and develop her business a lot, which will reflect positively on both her social and financial situation.

She works from home to take good care of her children, and at the same improve their living. She hopes to expand her business one day to open her own shop.
