Roukaya's story

Roukaya is a 50-year-old married mother of six children. She has worked as a hair dresser, from her house, for the last 18 years. She works to help her husband make their living and cover their family's expenses. Her business is home based, because at the time, she can't afford to open a separate beauty salon outside her house. Also, she benefits from taking care of both her family and business at the same time.

She is acquiring a loan from Kiva's partner, Al Majmoua, to pay for her children's school fees and buy necessary newly released hair dying colors. This loan is very important for the development of her family's socioeconomic situation. She hopes to keep on working for her family and one day open a separate beauty salon, that will surely increase her family's income.
