After gaining experience in an alternative medicine/natural treatment clinic, Manal decided to open her own business, providing treatments. She works in reflexology, shock wave treatments, and other recognized and successful avenues for pain alleviation. Manal originally began working from home, but relocated to a central area within a medical clinic. The location is popular and well-liked by her clients.
Manal needed this loan to purchase a treatment bed, a shock wave therapy machine, a door for her clinic, and additional materials. Manal’s business has great potential. She wants to one day expand to a full-service natural medicine center and ensure that her children gain a strong education.
