Kawkab's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped to buy more ingredients for making sweets.
Kawkab is a 53-year-old mother of seven sons and daughters. Five of them have gotten married already. Her son Sulaiman has a small cafeteria shop located in a very active area in Al Zarqa where he serves hot drinks and soft drinks beside sweets and biscuits. Most of his customers are taxi and bus drivers or workers who are looking for fast cheap food to eat either as breakfast or lunch. Kawkab helps her son Sulaiman by preparing the sweets at home and sending them with him on a daily basis. She also makes special orders for other customers. Now Kawkab wants to expand by distributing the sweets she makes to more areas in Al Zarqa and selling them in more sweets shops, but to do that she needs to make a larger quantity of sweets, and that’s why she has applied for this loan. Because Kawkab is a conservative person, she asked her son Sulaiman to appear in the photo instead.
