Rabeaa is a 47-year-old Palestinian divorced mother of five children. She has been working in selling cosmetics and accessories since October 2010. She also works at the UNERWA, but her family responsibilities forced her to start her own business. Since 2010, Rabeaa has been working hard on expanding her business capital, increasing her customers and making sure that all her children's needs and requests are covered.

Rabeaa has been an Al Majmoua borrower for seven cycles, with a good-standing pay back history and excellent reputation. Rabeaa applied for a loan from Kiva's partner Al Majmoua, in order to increase her merchandise with special season make-up, perfume and cosmetics offers. She hopes that one day she will open a big cosmetics and accessories shop where she can provide privacy to her family.
