Fatemah is a 56-year-old married woman and the mother of three children. She has worked since 1997 at selling baby diapers and sanitary napkins from her house. She intended to work from her house in order to stay next to her children. Taking good care of them at the same time made for the best management of her business.

This is Fatemah's eleventh cycle with Al Majmoua. She is requesting a loan in order to increase her capital through buying big quantities with special prices. In addition, she will help her son in building his own house, through a small payment she will give him.

Fatemah is encouraged by most of her customers, neighbors and family, and this what has helped her to stay this long and expand her business. She hopes to open a big shop in the future.
