Fatma's story

Fatma is 50, married, and has four children. She has a small grocery business that she started to be able to pay for the needs of her four children. She has previously requested two loans, and she fully repaid all the installments on time. She used the income from the previous loan to afford education for her young granddaughter whose mother, unfortunately, passed away.

She is requesting this loan to buy some grocery items like frozen meat, frozen chicken, frozen fish in addition to cheese and rice. These things will help her to expand her business, which will allow her to afford the needs and the education of her granddaughter and also help her pay for her son's expenses. She is a kind mother and fighter for her family.
