Awatef is a 50-year-old married woman, mother of six children. Awatef has been working selling men's, women's and children's shoes since 2006. She is a hard worker, and she insists on providing the best living for her family.

Just like every mother, Awatef cares a lot for her children's comfort, and that's why she supports and develops her business as much as she can, in order to keep on developing.

Awatef has been an Al Majmoua-KIva partner borrower for two cycles. Her experience with Al Majmoua was very effective and encouraging. Today Awatef is requesting a loan from Kiva, in order to buy a new winter collection of shoes, attracting enough to new customers and old ones.

She hopes to open another branch to expand her working zone and to improve her income.
