Zeinab is a 23-year-old Lebanese engaged woman living with her parents. Her father is the one looking to satisfy his family needs. But since his income is not enough to cover the family expenses, Zeinab decided to start working as a hairdresser receiving customers at home. She’s a brave young woman who is running a business and at the same time taking care of her family. With her requested youth loan from Kiva partner Vitas s.a.l, she will purchase new hairdressing tools and supplies to better serve her clients. She hopes her business will grow so she is able to collect money and get married soon.
