Amani is a 24-year-old divorced lady. She is responsible for supporting four members of her family, which is a heavy burden she has to overcome through developing her business to make sure that she'll stay capable of replying to their needs and satisfying their desires.

Amani has been preparing and selling special perfume scents in addition to selling cosmetics and purses for 7 years. She used to work as a hairdresser before. In 2013, she established her current business to improve her living conditions. She needs to develop her business as much as she can to make sure that it will provide a good income that's enough to cover her family's increasing needs.

Today Amani is acquiring a youth loan from Kiva's partner Al Majmoua in order to increase her business merchandise with a special release perfume collection. There are special offer prices before the coming spring and summer season – especially before Mother's Day, which is celebrated on the 21st of March in Lebanon.

Amani is planning to open a beauty salon in the future that will include her current business and other beauty services that complete each other.
