Zahra is a 41-year-old hardworking woman. Seven years ago she started selling women's and children's clothes from her car by traveling among neighboring villages, searching for new customers and selling her products. Her business was expanding, so she decided to settle down, and in 2010 Zahra opened her clothes-selling shop in Tyre. Most of her customers were invited to the opening to ensure that they knew the place and would start coming over to buy their needs.

Today Zahra is requesting a loan from KIVA partner Al Majmoua, in order to increase her winter clothes collection. It's her first time to experience such a loan. She is planning to expand her business more by starting to target men in the future. She is a perfect wife who works hard to help her husband in making their living.
