A loan of $1,200 helped to pay for her daughter's wedding expenses.


Sanaa's story

Sanaa is a 45-year-old married mother of five children. She has been working selling cosmetics since 2007 to help her family in getting the necessary needs.

Sanaa works from her house, because at the beginning she had to stay at home and take good care of her children and do her business at the same time. She didn't have enough working capital to open a shop of her own. Most of her customers are relatives, neighbors and friends, who work hard at supporting her to provide a good living for her family.

She is acquiring a loan from Kiva partner Al Majmoua to pay for her daughter's wedding expenses, since her business income isn't enough to cover any additional expense. She hopes that one day she'll be capable of opening a separate shop outside her house.
