A loan of $1,000 helped to purchase merchandise for her store.


Wassila's story

Wassila has owned a clothing store since 1998. She is a 59-year-old widowed woman who lives in Beirut, the capital of Lebanon, with her two children. Wassila has competitive prices and is generous with her clients – she always discounts to please them. Her clients are mainly her friends, neighbors and passersby. When she first started her business, she had to face competition from bigger stores; whereas now, she has her own clientele and is always providing the best for her clients. She decided on this business because she wanted to improve her financial situation especially after her husband passed away.

Wassila requested a loan from Al Majmoua in order to purchase merchandise for her store. Wassila has been a microcredit client for 13 years now and has always repaid on time. Her previous loans helped improve her store by diversifying her merchandise and answering more of her clients’ needs. Wassila is very trustworthy and is doing what she does to improve her financial situation and provide the best for her children. In the future, she plans to keep on improving her business.
