A loan of $1,500 helped to buy iron to do necessary maintenance on her house rooftop.


Amal's story

Amal is a 26-year-old married woman, the mother of one child. She has been working as a hairdresser for four years. She uses her house as her work place so she can manage her business and family responsibilities at the same time.

Amal is a hard worker who is working on improving and developing her business as much as she can. She applied for a youth loan from Kiva's partner Al Majmoua in order to buy iron to do necessary maintenance on her house rooftop before the coming winter season to keep her house as a healthy living environment.

Amal helps her husband a lot in covering almost all of their expenses and is very proud of herself. She hopes to expand her business more in the future and open her own salon when her child becomes bigger.
