Ghamilet is special in her work because of her experience in sales, as well as her welcoming attitude with her customers. Her customers are her friends and neighbors. She requested a loan from Al Majmoua in order to purchase more merchandise for her store. Ghamilet has been a micro-credit client for eight years now and has always repaid on time.
When she first started her business, she had some financial issues purchasing all the necessary merchandise, but her previous loans allowed her to continually expand her stock and diversify her merchandise. She decided on doing her business because she wanted to have an independent job, as well as considering her experience. In the future, she plans on expanding her little store.
