Jamal is a 30-year-old married mother of one child. She has worked as a wedding and special events photographer since 12 years ago. She is also employed in a studio during the daytime. Her husband is employed too, but unfortunately with a low income. Their combined salary is below the acceptable line to live a healthy life.

Jamal decided to contact Al Majmoua because she needs a youth loan to buy a new updated camera that is necessary to keep her business in an excellent quality to keep her customers pleased and to attract new ones.

Jamal had some financial difficulties at the beginning to start her business. Today, she is working hard to open her own photography studio, which would be her dream come true, she claims.
