Fatma's story

Fatma is a 56-year-old widow with six sons and two daughters. She has a small kitchen equipment business that she started after husband died so that she could provide for her children and have a stable source of income. Fatma requested three previous loans, which was a great help in enabling her to increase her family’s income. Besides her husband’s pension, the loans have been the only way for her to cope with her difficult life.

Fatma is requesting a loan to restock her business with modern kitchen products that she can sell to brides. This will help to improve her children’s way of life. Fatma always thanks God for the Kiva lenders who offer their support and help. She is a courageous woman who stands up for her children even though they are now adults.
