Abla is a 28-year-old married woman and the mother of two children. She has been working in selling home products since 2005. She helps her husband in making their living and providing their small family a happy life. Her husband is a Poclain excavator driver with a low income.

She is applying for a youth loan from Kiva's partner Al Majmoua to buy a car that will make her work easier. She will decrease the transportation expenses for others who take her to the wholesale market, and will try her best to take her children in her free time on small tours around the villages to let them enjoy the beautiful landscape around them.

She will also invest in the car in another way; she will let her husband drive it as a taxi in his free time, too, to make sure that they are benefiting from it in a well managed way.

Abla hopes to keep on developing her business and to keep on making her children's small dreams come true.
