Roudayna is a 32-year-old married woman. A mother of three young children, she opened a clothes and women’s accessories shop five years ago to help her husband with the family's income and to pay for their children's schooling.
Today, Roudayna is asking for her second loan of $1,800 to buy additionA. merchandise to fill her shop with because it's situated in a busy area. She has been able, over the years, to have a growing number of clients pass by her shop and she needs to be always on top of their requirements.
