Dalia is a 31-year-old married mother of three children, who has been working in beauty business for ten years to help her husband in making their living and covering their children's expenses. Dalia is a makeup artist. She works at home since she isn't financially capable of opening a separate beauty salon.
Dalia is acquiring a loan from Kiva partner Al Majmoua to increase her business merchandise with special autumn and winter released offers and items that will attract customers attention and increase her income, especially that they are highly requested during the coming Christmas season.
Dalia hopes that one day she will develop her business more and will be capable of opening her own beauty salon.

This is a Group Loan
In a group loan, each member of the group receives an individual loan but is part of a larger group of individuals. The group is there to provide support to the members and to provide a system of peer pressure, but groups may or may not be formally bound by a group guarantee. In cases where there is a group guarantee, members of the group are responsible for paying back the loans of their fellow group members in the case of delinquency or default.
Kiva's Field Partners typically feature one borrower from a group. The loan description, sector, and other attributes for a group loan profile are determined by the featured borrower's loan. The other members of the group are not required to use their loans for the same purpose.
Loan tags help lenders find loans that match certain areas of interest. You can add up to 5 tags for this loan.
