Fatima, a 33-year-old married mother of three, has been working in her husband's convenience store for two years now. He husband opened the store in 2008, but due to his family's increasing needs he opened a small car-washing service to earn more income. Since that time, Fatima has been developing the convenience store to meet customer needs and requests.

Fatima's work is going on just fine, but she is now requesting a loan from Kiva partner Al Majmoua to help her husband in his business through the purchase of special car oils and a special oil suction machine to develop his business. This will be Fatima's second loan from Al Majmoua; her previous loan was invested in developing her store, and it reflected positively on her family's socioeconomic situation.

She hopes to keep on responding to the needs of her family and customers and continue to develop her and her husband's businesses.
