Sylvana's story

Sylvana is a 29-year-old married woman, mother of one child. She has been working as a hair dresser for ten years. She works from her house to make sure that she is taking care of her family and business at the same time. She is well known in the region, with her good reputation and talent.

Most of her customers are friends, relatives and neighbors.

Sylvana is applying for a youth loan from Kiva's partner Al Majmoua, in order to buy a special chair and wigs necessary for her business, because she is planning to have brides as clients.

Sylvana hopes to develop her business in a way that she can open her own beauty salon outside her house to keep her customers pleased and her family relaxed.
