Khadija has worked in selling fruits and vegetables since three years ago. This business is very important for her family's living since her husband doesn't have a stable income job; he depends on others' need for work.
Her business is based at her house. It's part of it, because for now she can't financially afford to open a separate one.
Khadija is applying for a loan from Kiva partner Al Majmoua to increase her merchandise with special season's fruits and vegetables. This loan is very important for her family's living, since she is considered to be the sole breadwinner for three members of her family (including her husband).
She hopes that one day she will be capable of opening a separate fruits and vegetables selling shop.
