Gwlala's story

Gwlala is a 43-year-old, married Iraqi woman. She has two children. To help her husband improve their family's income, she opened a beauty shop in 2005, providing hairstyling, cuts and coloring, face massage, makeup and beauty care. Gwlala has two employees. To continue providing excellent service and to attract additional customers, she decided to upgrade her business. Gwlala is requesting a $2,400 loan in order to buy a massage machine, chair, air conditioner and water cooler. She is aiming to increase her profits, which offers her the opportunity to provide a better life for her family as a whole. The story of Gwlala and her business is just one of many examples of IED’s clients who have been able to improve their businesses with a small business loan product specifically designed to meet the needs of small businesses, where relatively small capital can provide significant business improvement.
