Zahra is a 55-year-old widow who works for her own living, with no one to help her in her living.

She has worked as a tailor for 26 years. She is very talented in her domain and has customers' trust and support.

Zahra is looking forward to adding new products to her business. She wants to buy blankets and towels, to make special tailoring and sewing designs on them, and then sell them with new designs that will attract customers' attention.

That's why she applied for a loan from Kiva's partner, Al Majmoua Lebanese Association for Development. It will be her twelfth loan cycle for improving her business.

Her previous loans helped her a lot in expanding her business and developing it. At the same time, she was a borrower in good-standing. Zahra hopes to keep on replying to customers' needs and developing her business.
