Mouhana applied for a loan from Kiva's partner Al Majmoua in order to fix the leakage in her house before the coming winter season. She wants to keep her house a healthy living place for her family and to keep her production in a well managed medium.
This is Mouhana's first cycle as a Al Majmoua borrower. She hopes that her future experience with Al Majmoua will be in opening her dream business: a sewing factory. She has wide experience in this domain and hopes she can afford to buy the necessary machines.
