Amal is a 30-year-old married woman and a mother of two children. She has been working in selling used men's and women's clothes since September 2012. Amal used to work as an accountant, but she wanted to increase her financial support to her family, so that's why she insisted on starting her own business.

Her husband works as a truck driver and earns a very low income, so that's why she works hard to provide him with her support.

She is applying for a youth loan from Kiva's partner, Al Majmoua, in order to buy used kid's clothes and sell them for the coming summer season.

She is very optimistic about this loan and has many future plans.
