Alaa's story

Alaa is a 23-year-old single woman. She is a beautician who owns her own salon which has a number of clients from around her neighborhood. Alaa holds a university degree and a technical degree in beauty, hairdressing and make-up with over six years of experience as a beautician.
She believes that more growth can be made in her business, so she is acquiring a YOUTH loan from Kiva’s field partner Al Majmoua to increase her current inventory of beauty products, hair colors, accessories and hair dryers. In the future, Alaa intends to open a larger salon, allowing her to hire a couple of employees who will support her in her business development and she might open a beauty technical school in her community.
