A loan of $1,500 helped to buy new furniture for her house salon.


Mariam's story

Mariam is a 26-year-old single woman who has worked as a hairdresser from her house since 2008. Her business is going on just fine and she covers almost all of her needs and some of her family's too. Most of Mariam's customers are friends, relatives, and neighbors. She intends to expand her business by moving from her home to a separate beauty salon when she becomes financially capable of managing this step forward.

Mariam is requesting a youth loan through the Kiva partner Al Majmoua to buy new furniture for her house salon. She plans to please her customers with this slight decoration and hopes of saving money to expand and move out in the future.
