Islam's story

Islam is a 47-year-old single lady, who has been baking special Saj bread (a very thin traditional Lebanese bread, which is baked on a concave oven top) since 2009. Her mother taught her the basics of baking a delicious Saj bread, and now she is very good at it. Islam is a hard worker, who puts a lot of effort into developing her business and her social life. She is acquiring her second loan cycle from Kiva's field partner Al Majmoua in order to do maintenance to the roof of her house. This is necessary in order to keep it a healthy place to live, especially before the coming winter season. Islam is well known in her region for her special and delicious bread, in addition to her competitive prices. Loyal customers come from far away regions for her bread, so she is working hard to start distributing her product to a wider area.
