A loan of $1,500 helped to buy a car necessary for her business development.


Mariam's story

Mariam is a 22-year-old single woman who has been working as a mobile hair dresser for four years. She supports her six other family members for whom she is the only breadwinner. She has to make sure that her business is strong enough to cover their needs.

Mariam is applying for a YOUTH loan from Kiva's partner Al Majmoua to buy a car for her business development. She will use it to go from one customer's house to another.

She also expects customers at her house. Her business is based on well-organized time management which helps her reply to customers' needs.

She hopes that one day she can open her own beauty salon and serve her customers at any time.
