Hanan's story

Hanan is a 26-year-old divorced woman, who is working hard to provide her child the best life she can. Seven years ago, she started her own business at home as a hairdresser, to help in her family's income.

Hanan is a Palestinian refugee, and most of her customers are friends, relatives and neighbors from her region. Her business is improving, because her customers are increasing. Hanan is putting so much effort to develop it in order to make sure that she can provide her child a good life and a high level of education.

Hanan applied for a youth loan from Kiva’s partner Al Majmoua in order to buy beauty items. This is her third loan with Al Majmoua. Her previous loan helped a lot in supporting her business, through the tools and equipment she bought.

Hanan started her business from home because she didn't have enough capital to open a salon. She was trying to prove that when there is a will there is a way. She confirms that she was right and she will continue working on improving and developing her business to keep her customers pleased. She also hopes that one day she will make her dream come true.
