Fatima is a 35-year-old married woman and mother of five children. She has been working in food production and sales for 15 years. In 2002, Fatima started her own business to help her husband increase their income and improve their living.

Fatima specializes in Mouneh production, that is, preparing foods to be stored for seasons when they are not available. The quality of her products assures loyalty from her customers and increases in requests.

Fatima is requesting a loan from Kiva partner, Al Majmoua, to buy tools to make her business easier. She will also use part of the loan to help her husband cover their family's requests, through paying her children’s tuition fees.

This is her first experience as an Al Majmoua borrower. She hopes that future loans will be invested in expanding production in her business and opening a wide factory with a big retail shop.
