Douniah's story

Douniah is a 43-year-old woman who lives in Beirut, the capital of Lebanon, with her husband and their three children. Douniah has owned a grocery store since 1994. She sells canned food, beverages, candies, pasta and rice, oil, chewing gum, cakes and lots more.

Her clients are her friends and neighbors. Douniah is a very welcoming person, and each time a customer enters her store she likes talking to them and offers them something to drink.

She requested a loan from the Kiva field partner, Al Majmoua, in order to purchase new merchandise for her store so that she can expand her stock. This is the first time that Douniah has requested a loan from Al Majmoua.

When she first started her business, she didn’t face any difficulties. Douniah decided to open this business because she wanted to supplement her family’s income, but more importantly, she likes trading and likes her work. In the future, she plans to keep improving her store.
