Nada is a 38-year-old married mother of five children. She has been working in her small restaurant since 2012. Her husband is a retired soldier, and their combined low-income revenues aren't enough to cover their family's needs.

Nada is applying for a loan from Kiva's partner Al Majmoua, to register her husband's car as a taxi in order to help him work with it legally as a taxi driver, which will provide them with an additional daily income.

Her snacks are well known in the region because of her special toppings, cleanliness, prices, and the customer service she provides. She hopes to expand her snacks to a larger restaurant and a cafe in the future.
