Rania has received 2 loans from Al Majmoua prior to this one. Now she needs USD 700 to buy fabrics and accessories to continue expanding her work. Once she graduates, her dream is to transform the small business she runs from home into a registered company. For sure, Al Majmoua will do its best to help her reach this goal.
