Nada is a 45-year-old married woman and mother of four children. She has worked as a tailor since 1993; she works hard to help her husband in making their living and providing her children with most of their needs.

Nada has been an Al Majmoua borrower for four loan cycles. Her previous loans helped her a lot in improving her living conditions and expanding her business.

Nada applied for a loan from Kiva's partner Al Majmoua in order to buy a new sewing machine and to pay for her children's tuition fees. Her old sewing machine is not working, and this affects her business a lot; that's why she has to get this loan and buy a new one to reply to customers' needs quickly.

Her previous loans helped a lot in that she moved her house to a better one on the main road.
