A loan of $1,800 helped to start another business, which is an Internet café.


Lina's story

Lina, who is 43 years old, is married and has five children. She runs a small bakery, which she has had for almost two years, and this business helps support her family financially.

As her work is progressing, Lina would like to start another business, which is an Internet café. In order to do that, she needs a loan from Kiva’s field partner Al Majmoua so as to develop her work further and start her new business afterwards. Such support will allow her to reach her goals.

This is Lina’s sixth loan cycle from Al Majmoua. Her previous loans were invested in paying for her children’s school tuition fees so that she helps her husband with increasing financial responsibilities.
