Name: Ekram
Location: Israel

Microfinance Partner: KIEDF

Ekram (pictured second from left) started with a small kiosk that mostly served children during their 10am snack break at a nearby school. Her business would then be quiet in the afternoon. She took out a loan of 6000 NIS ($1,594 USD) from WPF microfinance partner KIEDF to add a small salon to her kiosk, purchasing a mirror, chairs, washing station, and beauty courses so she could learn new styling techniques.
