Mayada's story

Mayada is a 26-year-old married mother of one child. She has worked as a hairdresser for two years, and has a very good reputation in her domain. Mayada is a hard worker and a very talented person in her field, with a good number of loyal customers. Her husband has a low income business, and her family’s needs are increasing, which is why she’s encouraged to acquire a YOUTH loan from Kiva’s partner Al Majmoua to start a new business which will provide her family with and additional income. She will open a shop where she will start selling charcoal that’s highly requested for hookah businesses, and she will ask her husband to manage this business because she finds herself among beautiful ladies and surrounded with beauty all the time. She also sells lady’s dresses for special events, and hopes that one day she will open a special events dressing shop either separated from her beauty salon or she will move to a wider place where both businesses will have enough space to facilitate customers’ needs.
