Zeinab is skilled at what she does and works hard on improving her business as much as she can. That is why she is requesting a loan from Al Majmoua, Kiva's partner, in order to buy a specialized tailoring machine and to increase her home appliances capital.
Zeinab's business increases a lot during the holy Eid Al Fitr celebrations, a three day Muslim holiday that marks the end of Ramadan, since most people mend old clothes or request new tailored dresses and many other items. An updated machine would help a lot during this season and the coming days. Zeinab hopes to expand her business by opening two big separate shops in the future.
