A loan of $1,000 helped to buy more shoes and diversify her offerings to include toys.


Nabiha's story

Nabiha is a 34-year-old, married woman and a mother of four children. She opened a shoe store in 2004 and, since then, she has been supporting her husband in their household expenses. With consecutive loans from Kiva’s partner, Al Majmoua Lebanese Association for Development, Nabiha succeeded in enhancing the quality of her products and increasing the visibility of her store.

Today, Nabiha is applying for a fifth loan; she will use the money to buy more shoes and diversify her offerings to include toys. This will allow her to generate more revenues and further secure her business continuity.
