Hiyam Group's story

Hiyam is a group of three Lebanese women. They acquired a loan from Kiva partner's Al Majmoua, because they have always been neighbors and friends.

Hiyam is the featured borrower of the group; she is the lady wearing red in the middle. Hiyam is a 56-year-old married mother of five children. She puts in so much effort to develop her business in order to provide better for her family's increasing needs.

Hiyam is a makeup artist. She works from her house because at the beginning she wasn't financially capable of opening a separate place of business of her own. She specializes in tattoo and makeup work. Her clients are increasing because of her special reputation and expertise after ten years in this field.

Today, Hiyam is acquiring a loan from Kiva partner's Al Majmoua to open a new shop selling clothes. She will invest in a well-managed way in both businesses to develop them equally.

As for the other group members, Samia is the lady in blue at the left, and Joumana is the lady at the right.

In this group: Hiyam, Samia, Joumana
