Fatima 39 years old and married with two children. She has been working for the past five years and is an itinerant shoes and clothing saleswoman. Given that an accident has forced her to undergo a costly operation on her foot (a rather vital appendage in her line of work), she was hoping to obtain a loan from Al Majmoua to pay off her hospital bills and also to purchase new inventory for the summer season. Fatima is a very self-reliant and simpatico woman who is driven to give her children a proper upbringing and hopes to one day own her own store.
