A loan of $1,500 helped to expand her inventory of accessories and traditional clothes.


Ghiwa's story

Ghiwa is a 30 year old Lebanese married woman. She’s living with her parents and two school aged children because of her husband’s crucial work outside the country.

In 2008, she started her own business selling accessories and traditional clothes from her house. Her income is important in supporting her husband, who works nonstop to be able to satisfy his family's needs and pay his children's study fees. Her husband works at a company that he has spent almost fifteen years in.

Today, Ghiwa is asking for a youth loan from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l. to expand her inventory of accessories and traditional clothes. Her intention at this stage is to augment her sales so as to amplify her income. In the future, she is planning to open her own shop.
