Loucine is a 28-year-old Lebanese single woman living with her parents and one sibling. She faced bad circumstances and lived in unpleasant financial conditions. This is why she struggled and worked hard to show her perseverance in being able to enhance her way of living. So in 2005, she started to work as a beautician. She works at her house and also visits customers wherever they are located to provide them with her high-quality beauty services. She is very thankful for the results attained so far thanks to the previous loan she took from Kiva. Today, she is requesting a youth loan from Kiva partner Vitas s.a.l to purchase beauty products and cosmetics so that she can improve her business operations and follow up on the new fashions. In the near future she plans to open her own beauty salon.
