Wafaa has taken out and repaid 13 loans from Al Majmoua, and made good use of each of these loans to expand and improve her business. She is applying for a new loan, also from Kiva's partner Al Majmoua, to buy new heaters to sell this winter. These heaters are very important to have, in part because her village is hosting displaced Syrians who are searching for a shelter during a hard political time and a poor security situation
Wafaa hopes to keep expanding her business and meet more of her customers' needs and requests.
