Joumana, 30 years old, is single and lives in Tripoli in the north of Lebanon.

Joumana's enthusiasm and willpower allowed her to defy the community as she opened a shop to sell painting materials, a business traditionally managed by men. She requests a loan of $1,200 so she can purchase more goods to sell. This will allow her to attract more clients by offering them a larger variety of products.

Joumana has been a micro-credit client of Al Majmoua for the past 4 years. She has always repaid her debts on time.
