A loan of $1,000 helped to purchase new hairdressing tools and supplies.


Aya's story

Aya is a 23-year-old Lebanese single woman who lives with her parents and three siblings, who are all working. Her father is the one responsible for supporting the family money-wise. But since his income is not enough, she decided to start working as a hairdresser receiving customers at her house. Her story exemplifies the day-to-day challenges Lebanese women are facing running a business and at the same time supporting their families.

Aya is working hard to continually provide income for everyday expenses. With her requested youth loan from Kiva partner Vitas s.a.l., she will purchase new hairdressing tools and supplies so as to better serve her clients. Aya hopes her business will grow and wants to be able to give her family needed support.
