Jamila is a hard working woman, with a very good reputation. She applied for a loan from Kiva's partner, Al Majmoua, in order to increase her business capital with a special discount for flour and oils requested. Jamila will also help her son in his marriage preparations and needs.
Jamila has been an Al Majmoua borrower for ten consecutive cycles; all of her previous loans helped a lot to improve her business and increase her income.
Most of her customers say that her Manakish, which is also a Lebanese traditional breakfast sandwich similar to pizza but folded with special thyme, cheese, or minced meat toppings, have the best taste ever in the region.
She hopes to stay in a good health, and to keep on improving her business as much as she can.
