A loan of $1,500 helped to change her shop's decorations.


Juliette's story

Juliette is a 51-year-old widow, mother of six children. A year and a half ago, after her husband passed away, Juliette started her own business, specializing in embroidery, souvenirs, and clothes.

Her main aim was to cover her family's needs, especially her children's education fees which are very important to her since she had the chance to reach the intermediate classes because of her family's financial situation. Her business is going just fine, although she has a short period in the market, but she proved to be skillful in her domain, which attracts customers' attention.

Juliette is applying for a loan from Kiva's partner, Al Majmoua Lebanese Association for Development, to change her shop's decorations, to keep it attracting customers' attention. She might also use part of the loan to buy necessary embroidery needs to expand her business.

She hopes that, one day, her customers will increase, which is the main target she is working on achieving, and then move to a larger shop in the future.
