Naayem is a hardworking woman. She is proud that she's capable of helping her husband to improve their standard of living. That's why she is requesting a loan from Kiva partner Al Majmoua in order to buy a new machine necessary to improve the quality of her products and increase her productivity in a very short period of time.

Naayem will also invest part of the loan to help her son pay for his wedding as her gift to him.
