Marlein is a 24-year-old married woman who has been working in agriculture for five years. She is a hard worker who helps her husband in making their living for a better future.

Marlein has a very good reputation and is loved by almost all of her friends and neighbors. She applied for a YOUTH LOAN from Kiva partner Al Majmoua, in order to buy iron doors for the barn she has to keep her cows safe and organized.

Marlein is working hard to improve her business through improving the barn situation to help the cows improve their production of milk and dairy products.

This is her second cycle as an Al Majmoua borrower, with a good standing in her paying-back history. Her previous loan was invested in her business, through finishing building the cows' existing room. She will work hard on building another room to increase the number of her cows and that will surely lead to an increase in milk and dairy production.
