Over the years, her business operation was exceeding. And she has found an opportunity to expand her business into other areas. This woman works hard in cooperation with her husband who works as an electrician to satisfy the family needs. Today, she is requesting to borrow $2,000 from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l to buy new tools and supplies in order to fulfill her project and expand her work. This will be her third Kiva loan.
