A loan of $1,500 helps to purchase a living room and a refrigerator for her house.

Nana’s story

Nana is a 45-year-old Syrian refugee. She is a married mother of four. Since they fled from their home town in Syria, she has been working hard to support her husband in covering their family’s increasing living needs.

Nana had her own beauty salon in Syria. Unfortunately, due to the war in Syria, she had to get employed three years ago with a limited monthly salary.

Through a loan from Kiva’s field partner, Al Majmoua, Nana will purchase a living room and a refrigerator for her house.

She is looking forward to opening her own beauty salon in the future and to attracting new customers.

This loan is special because:

It gives opportunity to Syrian refugees who have fled the war in Syria.
