Fatima is a 42-year-old, married mother of five children. She is a Syrian citizen, who has been working at selling mobile phones and accessories since 2009. She uses her income to help her husband in making their living and covering their family's expenses.

Fatima is a hard worker, well known in her region for the special quality of the goods she sells and the services she provides. At the beginning she had financial problems, which were a major problem that limited her business development. Now she's facing these obstacles in a well managed way, and she hopes to keep on doing so, to improve her family's living, and to develop her business.

She is acquiring a loan from Kiva's partner, Al Majmoua. She will use this loan to increase her business merchandise with newly-released mobile phones and accessories. She hopes that in the future she will develop her business to start electronic money transfer operations, too, which will attract more customers.
