Rita is 22 years old, married, and has one child. Three years ago, she decided to use her proficiency and skillfulness in making “Mouneh” to increase her family’s income. She sells her special homemade “Mouneh” (conserving food from one season to another) and is able to help her husband in covering the family’s expenses and needs.

Rita requested a Youth Loan from Al Majmoua, which she will use to buy necessary “Mouneh” products, which have to do with the current season’s agricultural production to be conserved for other seasons where they do not exist. This loan will help Rita to improve her business and save some of her acquired income for her child’s future.
