Ghada is a 44-year-old married woman and a mother of four children. She has been working in clothing sales for eight years. In this way she helps her husband, who works as a security man, in making their living and covering their family's expenses. Her husband's income is not enough, so they have to work side by side to make sure everything is under control.

Today, Ghada is selling clothes from her house and by visiting other customers' houses to market her merchandise.

The loan applied for with Kiva's partner Al Majmoua will be invested in increasing her merchandise with special summer collection clothing items especially for beach needs and requests.

She is very excited about this loan, and will make sure to invest it properly, hoping that a future loan will be specialized to opening her own clothes-selling shop.
