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


A loan helped to buy winter clothes for women, bridal sets for winter and clothes for kids, to earn enough money to help her husband in household expenses and in education fees for her children.


Walaa's story

Walaa is 28, married in a small village, and has two sons.

Her husband has a blacksmith workshop, and she has a small clothing business. She requested two loans before and fully repaid them on the due dates. She said that every loan had a role in improving her life and her family also.

Now, we are entering the winter season and she is asking for a loan to change her goods and buy winter clothes for women, bridal sets for winter and clothes for kids.

She asks to renew the loan and develop her business to earn enough money to help her husband in household expenses and in education fees for her children. And some of the profit money will use in helping her husband to expand the blacksmith workshop to be known in the village.
