Wafaa is a 53-year-old married woman who has earned a living since 1970 by selling household appliances. She works hard and is committed to helping her husband earn an adequate income. She is also very talented, and puts a lot of effort into meeting her customers' needs by securing adequate capital and releasing new products.

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.
