Hala's story

Hala is 30, married and has 3 children. Her husband works as an employee and his income is very low. She has a small undeveloped grocery store. She wants to develop her business and expand it.

So, she is asking for a loan to buy canned tuna, rice, pasta, beef, and other grocery products to appeal to all her customers' demands, especially so her business is successful in her place in the village. She asks for a loan in order to increase the family income to help her husband in the household expenses and in school fees for her children.
