Asmahhan Group's story

Wafaa is the featured borrower of the Asmahhan group. She joined up with the other group members to acquire a loan from Kiva partner, Al Majmoua, because they have always been neighbors and they trust each other. They all intend to develop their living and business, and the acquired loan is their only hope. Wafaa is a 44-year-old married mother of five children. She has been working as a hairdresser for twenty-five years, and is well known in her region with the special talents she acquired during this period. She runs her business at home, and visits some of her customers’ homes upon request. She is developing her business, but her income combined with her husband’s are barely covering their family’s increasing expenses. For this reason her acquired loan will be invested in buying necessary highlighting needs, a wax machine and its required chair. Wafaa will use part of the loan to buy a gift for her son’s engagement. She hopes to keep on developing and expanding her business and providing her customers with different requested services. Wafaa is the lady standing at the center of the picture. As for the other group members, Aya is the first on the left, and Asmahan is the first on the right.
