Merhi Group's story

Merhi is a group of three Lebanese women, who joined hands to acquire a loan from Kiva's partner Al Majmoua, to develop their socio-economic situations.

Anisa is the featured borrower of Merhi group; she is a 35-year-old married mother of two children. She has been working as a hair dresser and makeup artist for five years. Her business is based at home, because currently she can't afford to open her own separate beauty salon.

She is the one wearing purple at the far left of the picture. Her loan will be invested in increasing her business merchandise with special cosmetics released for the summer. She hopes that one day she can open a widely-developed beauty salon.

As for the other group members, Nada is the one wearing white, and Huda is the lady in black.

In this group: Anisa, Nada, Huda
