Hayat is a 54-year-old married woman, who has worked as a tailor for 23 years. Her house is her working place. She insisted on having this business to help her husband provide for their living and to stay at home, to reply for her precious husband’s needs because her business isn’t taking too much space.

Hayat is a woman with a good reputation. She is very talented in her business, and most of her customers recommend her to others. Her prices are encouraging and affordable to anyone, which is an advantage in which she invests.

Hayat is requesting a loan from Al Majmoua, in order to help her husband pay what’s left from the price of their dream house, the house that they’ve been working hard their entire life to get, and their dream is almost coming true. With the requested loan, Hayat and her husband will secure their elderly life in their own house, and they will rest without thinking of how they have to pay the rent at the end of each month if one of them wasn’t capable of working anymore. She said that they are aging with no one to look after them, which is why they are working hard not to be in need of anyone in the future.
