Bassima is a 56-year-old, married mother of five children. She has been working in a beauty salon since 1997. She is a hard worker, who puts much effort into helping her husband to earn their living and cover their family’s increasing needs.

She is acquiring a loan from Kiva's partner, Al Majmoua. She will use the loan to buy a new massage machine. The machine will help her develop her business and reply to her customers’ needs. She will also invest part of the loan to make urgent maintenance at her house, before the winter season.

She hopes that in the future, she’ll expand her business to a wider beauty salon. The expansion she hopes for would enable her to provide her customers with extra beauty services and facial treatments, to please them as much as she can.
