Kifah is a 37-year-old married mother of two children. She opened a small grocery store, seven years ago, next to her house to support her husband in covering their increasing living expenses.

Kifah used to work as a hairdresser from her house, but she preferred to turn to a daily need income business, and she found out that food is the necessary daily needs.

Kifah is acquiring a loan from Kiva's partner, Al Majmoua, to increase her business merchandise with special summer beverages. That will sure increase her income, since they are already requested by her customers and she is working on acquiring them.

She hopes that in the future, she can improve her financial situation, and open a beauty salon in addition to her current business.
