Salam is a 45-year-old married mother of four children who works as a tailor from her house since 1993.

She is a hard working woman who puts so much effort in financially supporting her husband and family to make sure that they are getting the necessary living needs.

In addition to working as a tailor, she provides some medical services to neighbors and other customers upon request, through pricking medical needles to medicate children and any sick person who can be treated at home, and when medical syringe needles are requested.

Salam is acquiring a loan from Kiva's partner, Al Majmoua, to buy a necessary medical machine for her son to help him in his living and make his life easier.

She hopes to expand her business through moving her tailoring services outside her house and expecting new customers.
