Toufica is a 45-year-old, widowed mother of three children. She works hard to provide them necessary living standards since her husband passed away. She is a talented hairdresser and has learned this profession through her mother, who encouraged her to learn it. Her 24 years of experience provided her with special talents and skills, which encouraged her to establish her own beauty salon two years ago. At the beginning, she had to work hard to build a strong chain of customers.

Through her currently acquired loan from Kiva partner, Al Majmoua, Toufica seeks to buy gowns, dresses and new business needs, to start selling in her salon, to increase her income and develop her financial situation.

Her future plan is to expand her business, through diversifying the products and services provided.
