Khouloud is a 24-year-old married woman from Lebanon. She is living with her husband, who works in the construction field, and three children attending school. She works independently selling scarf and traditional cloth named “Aabaya”. Khouloud has her own customers, and lately she received a bigger demand on her products. But since she is unable to purchase a wide variety of clothes at this time, she decided to apply for a youth loan from Kiva partner, Vitas s.a.l., to do so and meet her customers' needs. In the future, Khouloud plans to open her own clothing store where she will better display her items.
