Wafaa's story

Wafaa is a 19-year-old engaged Lebanese woman living with her parents and three siblings. Wafaa faced bad financial conditions, although she worked hard to show that she is able to enhance her family’s way of living and support her father with their expenses.

In 2009, Wafaa started to work as a hairdresser. She works from home and visits customers wherever they are located to provide them with her high-quality beauty services.

This will be her first Kiva loan and she is very thankful for the results she has attained so far. Today, she is requesting a youth loan from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l to renew her old tools and purchase a new collection of brushes, hair products, and many other items. In this way, she will be able to improve her business operations and follow up on the new fashions.
