Latifa's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped to buy an electric oven that is necessary for developing her business and increasing her production.
Latifa is a 50-year-old married mother of three children, who has worked as a cook from her house for nearly thirty years. She is well known in her region with her good reputation and special cooking talents and services. Latifa is the sole breadwinner for her three children and three grandchildren who live with her in the same house, which forces her to work harder to make sure that she can respond to her beloved family's increasing needs and develop her business. Today, Latifa is acquiring a loan from Kiva's partner Al Majmoua, to buy an electric oven that is necessary for developing her business and increasing her business production, so that she can meet her increasing customers' requests. Latifa works continuously from 6am to 6pm. She hopes that in the future she can establish her own restaurant, and that her daughters will help her in managing and developing it, to increase her family's income and attract new customers.
