Rajmonda is an Egyptian woman in her forties. She is divorced, and she has four children ranging in age from 9 to 24 years old. Her youngest child is still attending school. She does not receive any support -- financially or emotionally -- from her ex-husband. As a result, she explains that she is basically on her own, and that she and her children have had a difficult few years.

Despite the difficulties Rajmonda has been having, she started selling used clothes in an attempt to improve her family's living conditions. “I don’t make much, yet with whatever I make I can feed my children,” Rajmonda said with tears in her eyes.

She is now requesting a loan from Kiva to buy used clothes. She is extremely appreciative of lenders' support and kindness.
