Tami is a 28 year old married woman and mother of two children. Tami has been working as a hairdresser for three years. In 2010, she started her own business to improve her family's living.

Tami is a hard worker. Because she manages her business from her house, she can take good care of her family members at the same time. She also works as a tutor to increase her income.

Tami is applying for a youth loan from Kiva partner Al Majmoua to buy new furniture and tools to please her customers in a more relaxing atmosphere. This is Tami's first experience as an Al Majmoua borrower. She is planning that with future experience, she will invest in moving her hairdressing business from her house to a special beauty salon in a very important region.
