Layla's story

Layla, is a 65-year-old widowed mother of five children. In 2006 she opened her convenience store business to make her living and cover her expenses. She is a woman with a very good reputation in her area, and she is a borrower in good standing with Kiva partner Al Majmoua.

Layla is requesting her sixth loan. She will use her loan funds to increase her business merchandise with special-offer spring and summer products, and to diversify her products in order to satisfy the requirements of her customers, thus increasing her income.

She will also use part of the loan for visiting Holy religious places, which she is looking forward to do at this age.

Her previous loans helped her a lot in expanding her inventory, allowing her to add several new products. She is investing much hope in this current loan, and is hopeful that it will fulfill her customers' needs.
