Samar is a 25-year-old single woman who has been working as a hairdresser for 9 years. In 2006, Samar opened her own beauty salon and is working hard to improve it, because it is her main source of income for living.

Samar is applying for a YOUTH LOAN, from Kiva partner Al Majmoua, to fix the leakage in her salon and to buy a new hair rinsing sink. These things are necessary to make her work easier.

This is Samar's first loan cycle as an Al Majmoua borrower and she hopes that her future experience with Al Majmoua will be invested in introducing her customers to new beauty products to buy.
