A loan of $1,700 helped a member to purchase the necessary equipment to open her own salon from home.


Moon Group's story

Amal is the featured representative of the Moon group. She and the other members of this group loan are best friends, and they’ve acquired a loan from Kiva’s field partner Al Majmoua so that they can all make improvements to their livelihoods together.

Amal is a 49-year-old single woman who is financially responsible for three other members of her family. She first started working in a clothing store, but she has since decided to follow her passion as a hair stylist and has been working in a salon for the last five years.

This is Amal’s second time borrowing, and she is using this loan to purchase the necessary equipment to open her own salon from home. Owning her own salon will provide Amal with the financial stability and independence she needs to adequately provide for her family.
