Therese, 39 years old, married and mother of one child owns a small tailor shop in Bourj Hammoud in the Northern Suburbs of Beirut.
She has been a client of Al Majmoua for the past 3 years and has a very good record of on time repayment. Before opening the shop a couple of years ago, Therese was working from her home. With time, she understood that if she wants to get more exposure and expand her business, she needs to open a shop and offer a better visibility for her work.
As expected, since the opening of the shop, she enlarged her clients base and increased her monthly revenues in a substantial way.
This time, Therese needs a loan for an amount of USD 750 to buy a stock of fabrics and sewing threads. Indeed, she has received from 2 schools in her neighborhood a request to provide them with a large number of students uniforms.
