Hayfa started selling mobile phones from her house to friends, neighbors and relatives in the year 2000. Her business has grown well and now she has many foreigners who visit her to buy used or new mobile phones. Her good communication skills have helped her a lot to expand her business.
Hayfa has been through 10 consecutive loan cycles with Kiva field partner Al Majmoua. Her previous loans helped her a lot to expand her business, improve her family's living standards, and to afford special maintenance for her house. She made her house an ideal healthy living house.
Hayfa is a borrower in good standing who works hard to improve her business. She plans to use the proceeds of this loan to buy new models of mobile phones to sell. She hopes to open a mobile services shop in the future and start other businesses for her children to manage.
