Intisar is a 55-year-old widow who has to work hard in order to make her living. Intisar is a Palestinian refugee who lives and has her clothes and accessories shop in a Palestinian Camp, which she hardly leaves to go anywhere else.

Intisar is applying for her fifth cycle loan from Kiva's partner Al Majmoua to increase her accessories and perfumes inventory with a newly released collection. Al Majmoua supports Intisar a lot, since she works hard to improve her living.

She hopes that one day she can be able to buy her own shop instead of paying part of her net income for rent.
