A loan of $500 helped to increase her business merchandise inventory by buying a special spring and summer collection of cosmetics.


Fatima's story

Fatima is a 22-year-old single woman who has been selling beauty cosmetics and perfumes for the last three years. In 2012, Fatima started her own business because she wanted to earn a better living. She has a good number of customers, most of whom are neighbors, relatives and friends. They recommend her to others and help her increase her income.

Fatima is applying for a youth loan from Kiva's partner Al Majmoua in order to increase her business merchandise inventory by buying a special spring and summer collection of cosmetics.

Fatima hopes to open her own shop in the future; however, at the present time, she can't afford the expense.
