Jamila's story

50-year-old Jamila lives in Saida, Southern Lebanon, with her husband and their five children. Since 1993, Jamila has owned a grocery store where she sells candies, canned food, home cleaning products, juices and other products. Jamila has been a microcredit client for six years and has always re-paid her loans on time. When she started her business, she faced few problems except for the lack of diversity in her merchandise. Her previous loans have helped her diversify her merchandise to increase her income. She is requesting a loan from A. Majmoua to purchase merchandise and a cash register. Jamila's business is unique because it offers a wide range of products. Her clients are people from her region like family members, friends and neighbors. She decided to pursue her business to help supplement her husband's income. More importantly, she wanted to have independent work and be self-reliant. In the future, she plans to continue improving her store.
