Zeinab is a 53-year-old single woman who has been raising cows for the past three years, benefiting from their milk to make tasty dairy products. She also prepares Mouneh (preserving foods that perish into foods with long shelf life which then last throughout a whole season) especially for the winter and autumn seasons.

Zeinab works hard during the summer to prepare the requested Mouneh. This is why she has applied for a loan from Kiva partner, Al Majmoua. She will then be able to increase her supply of the necessary raw materials through buying the special vegetables and fruits that she preserves to meet her customers' needs. Zeinab feels very proud of herself when she delivers what her customers need and gets paid at the end. Through doing this, she proves to them how strong she is in the market and supports her stability and assures them of her presence.

Zeinab hopes to keep on expanding her business and hopes to open a Mouneh retail shop where she can display her various products.
