Zeinab is a 56-year-old married woman and the mother of three children. She has worked as a tailor from home for more than 20 years, mainly in fixing and patching clothing. Zeinab’s customers are quite satisfied with her fine-finishing and good prices.

To maintain her quality service, Zeinab needs to buy a new sewing machine, since her current one is not working right. For this purpose, she is applying for a loan from Kiva’s partner, Al Majmoua. With the new machine, Zeinab will be able to carry on her work without difficulty and retain her customers. She will even increase her production rate and have the capacity to serve more clients.
