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

A loan helped to buy modern clothes for women to increase her income.

Ahlam's story

Ahlam is 40 years old; she is married and has 4 children. She has worked in the clothes field for 8 years and has experience in this field. She started her business at home and then rented a place to display the clothes for customers. The customers know her well and come to her.

She wants to continue her successful business so asks for a loan to buy modern clothes for women to increase her income to pay off the collage fees of her children and cover household expenses with her husband.
