Nouhad is a 46 year old divorced woman, mother of one girl, and owner of a bags shop since 2008. She has 22 years of experience in this field. Nouhad used to work as a teacher, but she felt that she had to prove herself in her own business where she can invest her talent and effort in an efficient way. Nouhad struggled a lot to keep her daughter satisfied and happy, to avoid the feeling of kids who suffer from divorced parents' struggles. Nouhad had her mother and daughter's support to start this business, and she also took the strength from her friends.

Her business is improving, and it's all through the previous loan she got from Al Majmoua, which helped in improving her social life too. This time Nouhad is requesting a loan in order to introduce new products to her customers such as cosmetics and accessories. She wants her customers to need such products the moment they step into her shop. She's respected by all of her customers, neighbors and friends. Nouhad hopes to expand through adding new products in the future.
