Safaa is a thirty-three-year-old married woman and mother of three children. In 2008, she opened a grocery store in her town. She decided to open her shop because she saw a need for such services in the region. The additional income she earns from the shop supplements her family’s other earnings, which altogether pay for their family's expenses. She offers food products, dairy products, breads, cereals, drinks, canned food, bread, candies, and more products to her clients.
Today, Safaa is requesting a loan to purchase merchandise to stock her shop in the hopes that this will increase her sales and, therefore, her income.
