Rival's loan finished fundraising, but these other borrowers need your support

A loan helped to buy more detergents for her detergent products-selling business.

Rival's story

Rival is a 39-year-old Jordanian woman, mother of four kids. Her husband who is retired from his job sells groceries through his car. To provide her family with an additional income source, Rival has started selling detergent products from her home. Her main challenge was the lack of finance to buy basic products. In order to run her business and buy more products, she asked for a 600 JDs loan, and to improve the single-room located in her home where she sells her products. Rival hopes to establish her independent shop, raise her kids, and continue to improve her family's financial situation.
